A remarkable attention to detail is at the heart of this very, very good restaurant/hotel. Everything has been thought through, clearly by people who know what guests (with or without dogs) want and how to provide with the maximum efficiency and minimum fuss. Two dinners and two breakfasts (no buffet,a rare treat), were all of the highest quality, local food, well prepared, innovative cooking. Daily changes to the menu. Excellent and unusual wines.
The bar area is small and perhaps overfilled with armchairs. In good weather this is not a problem but otherwise it will get crowded and cramped when busy. Some unusual contemporary art on the walls (especially Lucrezia), but also some not so interesting. No art in our garden room apart from the corridor with a rather naff reproduction print of cartoon cats. Not sure that filling the window ledges in the restaurant with empty bottles is very appealing, no matter how impressive the labels.
These are small points, overall excellent and well located for the coast, biking, walking, twitching etc. One hint, don't just go north for beaches, south is quieter and just as good.
