This hotel is unusual in that most of the rooms are at ground level and lead onto the wonderful gardens. We felt very relaxed here as it feels very homely compared to the larger hotels in the area. The breakfast bar offered a good selection and I would recommend that you take the option of ordering your eggs freshly cooked. The room was comfortable and spacious, the spa excellent as we had it to ourselves (maybe this would not be the case high season), The pool area was also lovely although we did not feel inclined to swim in February (even though it would have been warm enough for some people). Thanks to other reviews here we packed a small kettle and teabags since there are no tea making facilities in the standard rooms. There are lovely bars and restaurants within walking distance (we loved the Hole in One Irish pub) but be prepared for an uphill walk back - only a few minutes but quite steep. Take sensible shoes for walking around as a lot of the streets are cobbled.
