The setting for this hotel is really beautiful but remote and activities in the near vicinity are quite limited. If you like walking or horse riding it is the place for you.
The main building has been renovated well and sympathetically and the rooms in it are large and well presented. That said not all have baths in their spacious bathrooms, so check if that is something important to you.
Most of the rooms are in other buildings such as the old stables, separate from the main house. Again they are large and well thought out. Some have balconies which allow you to enjoy the setting and views to the mountains. That said they don't enjoy wi-fi connectivity, which you have to return to the main building to get.
There is a small spa area within the hotel but there is a small additional charge to use it, which is a pity, but does limit numbers there. As others have commented, the hotel would really benefit from some outdoor seating areas to allow guests to sit and appreciate the view.
I found the meals to be generous and the choice sufficiently broad to cater for a prolonged stay. The rice pudding was amazing - I think I would go back for that alone. Breakfast was also very good.
In summary, the hotel is in a lovely setting, has decent rooms and food, but its isolated location may not suit everyone.
