stsyed overnight on the hottest day of the year in this lovely hotel in a lovely setting, but for some bizarre reason, service stops for the outside terrace at 6 pm! No eating outside: instead, the bistro is a dark overcrowded hole with little natural light and the most uncomfortable chairs that could be sought. Seating arrangements are such that... More

We came for a holiday with our 7 year old son. The hotel exceeded my expectations. The rooms were spacious, elegant and nicely equipped. The pool was perfect for a surprisingly hot week, and the food was wonderful. Everyone working here is lovely, gracious and helpful. The grounds are just spectacular, and the hotel did a really terrific job blending... More

We bought a one night here through secret escapes and we weren't disappointed. Upgraded to a luxury room for a small charge. The room was very tastefully decorated, spacious,luxurious and very comfortable. The bathroom was all these things too, with both a roll top bath and a huge walk in shower. We had dinner in the bistro bar, and it... More

This place ticked all boxes and it was an absolute pleasure to stay here. We stayed for one night on the dinner bed and breakfast package. We had a standard room but it was far bigger than most other hotel rooms with a huge very comfortable bed. The staff were attentive from start to finish and couldn't do enough for... More
