Thank you for this kind review and I was sorry to read of the inconvenience caused by the bathroom TV not working.

This hotel is a gem. I booked a Sunday bed, breakfast and evening meal package as a surprise for my husband. Our room was beautiful and overlooked the gardens. Little touches in the room such as fresh flowers, cafetiere, filter coffee and fresh milk, fruit, sherry and chocolates. The evening meal was outstanding and the presentation was a picture on...
