We had warned the hotel that we would be arriving late and despite the fact that there was a wedding in progress we were given an outstanding welcome. Our room was clean, well equipped with a comfortable bed and had a lovely view of the grounds. It was also huge, slept four and would be great for a family. Breakfast... More
