My wife and I stayed here for two nights whilst our daughters were attending a festival. We were lucky enough to have the Fuscia room, plenty of space although I think I still have a bruise from the strange corners on the bed. The bathroom was lovely, fantastic huge tub and a nice big shower.
The main attraction is the food which was fantastic. The first night we had the tasting menu, with wine, and it was great not knowing what was coming next. Small point was that you don't get much wine with each course, a little bit more in the glass each time (especially the main course wines) would make a bit difference.
We stayed over on Sunday night as well and the menu was restricted, (so we were really glad we had the tasting menu on Saturday), but there was plenty of choice.
Overall an excellent trip and we hope to return with some freinds next year.
