A very nice hotel, clean and welcoming. Loved the location, set in a beautiful rural area, making you feel like you are nestled in a forest.
The rooms are clean and bright and well maintained
Food is very good
A couple of things on the downside;
we stayed for a couple of nights, with a lot of members of our family, spread out throughout the hotel for my parents Golden wedding anniversary.
firstly, on the first morning, we were initially woken very early in the morning, by someone banging on the room next door, then stood in their door way talking loudly :/
then shortly after we arose (around 8.30am) without knocking on the door, the chamber maid just walked in (luckily we had something on) and then left when she saw us. (there had been no door handle notice available for 'do not disturb', although i asked them at reception for one, we never received one), so that night i made my own and hung it on the handle outside.
secondly, there is quite a mix of European nationalities working there and i found the british were very professional, polite, friendly and always smiling but the rest of the staff were just 'professional' , the main waitress in the morning, who saw us to our table, was positively brash and rude , a lot of work on their people skills wouldnt go amiss.
But i was determined it wouldnt ruin our stay there and it didnt, it is a lovely hotel
