Our room was beautifully furnished and had everything we needed including a luxurious bathroom. We were disappointed that breakfast ended at 10 am, and after staying up late at the wedding we slept in... More

What a fabulous little hotel this is! Have stayed here a couple of times and it just gets better. The gardens are stunning and beautifully maintained.
