This hotel has so much going for it: prettiness and charm, a great location, spacious, attractively decorated rooms and great bathrooms with a spacious, powerful shower, a very good breakfast, comfortable beds, a lovely pool which looked inviting. There is ample parking for everyone and peace and quiet at night (mostly). So overall quite lovely.
We left feeling very content but during our stay we did wish that we had tea and coffee facilities in the room or even a minibar for some cold water/drinks. At the price they charge we would have appreciated being able to make our own cup of coffee before getting up in ten morning and a cup of tea whilst resting in the room after a long day of sightseeing. Paying more money and sitting on the communal patio having tea at a table in the afternoon is just not the same.
The breakfast is great, delicious really, but I do agree with other reviewers that management is not all that "smiley" and most noted at breakfast time. There is no sincere welcome in that warm way, and this really could change.
Be aware if you're a light sleeper that the rooms are not soundproof, someone stomping up the stairs outside our room at 4.45am woke us up, similarly someone above us on a previous night and we are sure that our early departure resulted in the same for others the next day. The TV was also way untuned, we watched BBC or whatever it was behind a snowy haze. A small thing but it makes a difference.
Would, I return? Yes, most likely as we were happy there, but I would check out the other options for any possible in room tea/coffee first.
