We stayed in the hotel and could not have been better pleased with our choice to 'eat in'. Wonderfully well prepared food, beautifully presented, in a relaxed atmosphere. After dinner drinks and good conversation with fellow guests round the fireside of the 'lounge'.

We dined in the brasserie on both evenings of our stay in the hotel. The menu was tempting and varied, the food delicious and the service excellent, all within an elegant setting.

Beautiful setting in the middle of nowhere. Room very comfortable with antique furniture. Comfortable bed but only a double. Well heated throughout the hotel. Shower pressure was poor but they were looking into it. Fantastic dining 'experience'. Could not fault the food, drink or setting.
