We stayed on the ground floor room, which is one of three. The room was massive, beautifully decorated with complementary mineral water, fruit bowl and chocolate and a variety of tea, coffee and biscuits. The bed was very comfortable.
The bathroom was equally spacious, well kitted out and had under floor heating.
The only drawback of the ground floor room is you can hear every movement of the room above.
Coffee at breakfast was delicious- I had a cappuccino, which was perfectly made. A lot of effort had gone into the breakfast, but to me it was slightly disappointing. The scrambled eggs were a bit dry and overcooked and had been squashed into a shape for beautiful presentation but slightly solidified texture. The mushrooms included a variety of oyster and wild mushrooms but they were dry and flavourless. My husband went for the vegetarian omelette and was disappointed to find that the filling- onions and peppers- were presented raw, on a bed of lettuce- more like a lunch salad than a breakfast. I think though, if we had selected different items from the menu, we would probably be raving about it. I saw the full english of the table next to us go by and it looked fantastic.
