The potatoes were hollow and very hard as they were overcooked as were the carrots also !... More

Each evening was an event, the food and service are excellent. One is not rushed and you can linger over coffee either in the restaurant or in the very comfortable lounge.

We went on a dinner to the summer lodge and were really surprised. Delicious food, nice setting, attentive service. We had the starters and main course and everything was exceptional. I don't think anything remained on anybody's plate!
