I have just returned from a weekend here and all I can say, is fabulous! The welcome we received Friday night was lovely and a wine tasting event was held and would highly recommend! The rooms are very clean and comfortable and very in keeping with the building. Breakfast and dinner was excellent and previous comments about lack of choice surprised me as wonderful selection. Would highly recommend the Spa facility too. I travelled with the Discovery Collection and their service and knowledge is excellent. Can't wait to visit again and explore the region more.
