I have stayed here a couple of times, both times in Garden Rooms. The rooms are eco-friendly and very comfortable.
The bathroom is magnificent with a huge wetroom area and a couple of washbasins, the bed is huge and very comfortable. I also appreciated the abundance of power points for all my phone and computer chargers.
The staff are very friendly and approachable and the restaurant on the other side of the garden is excellent. I have never seen the garden in summer but the discipline and attention to detail I have seen during the winter months suggests that it would be spectacular.
The location on the waterfront is excellent and I understand they operate their own ferry in the summer months. It is within a good walking distance from the railway station, but probably not if you have much more than an overnight bag..
I look forward to my next trip.
