accomodation superb. perfect balance of modern, spacious, luxurious yet cosy and inviting. spotless and well fitted out. breakfast to die for. second visit for us and is now a destination spot. peter and jane have got it right - friendly and helpful but professional and non-intrusive. for me it's the measure for all other places.
