We only stayed one night but would like to return. Our room(number1) overlooked the square and although not massive ticked all the boxes: usual tray of tea/coffee etc( though no de-caff of either- a bit surprising nowadays) ,extremely comfortable bed with high quality linen, spotless(if rather small) bathroom with reasonably efficient shower,nice toiletries and wonderfully large and soft towels. Although we were quite happy with just a shower,it might be an idea to double check as may people like a long soak in a bath after a day of walking.
Delightful young staff, all of whom got the balance of attentive service/recognising when you just want to be left alone exactly right.
We had eaten quite a large lunch so selected a sharing mix of starters and a salad for dinner in the restaurant. Very impressed with the imaginative food which was delicious,beautifully presented and unusual without being in the snail porridge category.
Would definitely like to sample a more substantial meal and imagine the early bird menu would be fantastic value(though think it is only on offer until7pm).Breakfast was cooked to order and It was good to see that the tomatoes and mushrooms were fresh rather than the tinned varieties so often served these days. Best scrambled eggs I have had for a very long time-highly recommended!
Overall, a super stay and fantastic value for money.
