I can endorse all the previous positive comments regarding the quality and choice of the food, the service and attentiveness of the staff and the ideal location of the hotel . As a summer visitor the other guests were mostly walkers like us and mostly fairly mature.

Only the rather sparse and slightly shabby bedrooms reduced the score from Excellent.

Inghams offer the conviviality of larger tables for chalet-style dining with your fellow guests, or the opportunity to dine à deux should you wish.
