Sadly we only spent 1 night here, should have booked for more. Jackie is a wonderful hostess, helpful, friendly. The hotel itself is beautiful. We didn't sample the full English Breakfast, only had the Continental, but this alone was scrummy and quite large in variety. Rooms are beautifully decorated, comfortable, clean and spacious. Attention to detail is superb. When next...

The worst thing about our stay was that it was too short! We stayed only one night and it was truly lovely on every dimension: from the decor, to the comfort, the staff, the food and best of all - a touch of Italy with Eros playing softly in the background and a delicious Aperol Spritz. I hope we have...

We stayed for 2 nights over New Years. The house is beautifully maintained inside and out, with a simply stunning garden with a breakfast terrace. The living room provides a great space to read or chat and the small bar area with a well stocked cellar of local wines and honesty bar is great for a nightcap. The breakfast was...

We experienced a very friendly service from the staff, well positioned in a quiet environment, close to restaurants and other amenities, it is ideal for a quiet and intimate timeout with your partner. Linen was always kept fresh and clean, that I liked very much.

We spent 2 nights for our mid-year anniversary weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed the tranquility, except for the 2nd night, there was a young girl booked in the room above us and she played with marbles on the floor til midnight! But that was not the hotels fault. Bad parenting. The breakfast was perfect. We've been to many breakfast places in...

We wanted a one night honeymoon getaway and this was beautiful. We stayed in the jacuzzi room. It was private and secluded and perfect. The only drawback was that it was a boiling hot day and the jacuzzi heating had been left on so it had to be drained and filled with cold water. They did that fairly quickly after...

We stayed here for 2 nights. The house and garden are lovely and the staff could not have been friendlier. We had a ground floor room which was very comfortable. The small decanter of port was a lovely touch. Breakfast was excellent. Freshly cooked to order and a range of fruit, cereal etc. I couldn't get Internet connection in the...
