We came here on the spur of the moment, and were bowled over by the glorious location. Lovely views from our windows to mountains, and hotel is set in delightful grounds close to a nature reserve. Hotel is extremely comfortable with unique decor complemented by the artist owners' paintings - each bedroom is named after an artist, all with striking colouring and decor. Clearly a favourite haunt of the smart money, the owners are discrete, friendly and helpful. And the food - amazing! Dinner ran into several spectacular courses, with a 'tasting menu' and wines to match. Not sure I've ever had a Michelin starred breakfast before, but this was a poached egg and smoked haddock to die for.....!
Only 2 niggles - no fridge or kettle in the room, so even getting an early morning cup of tea without fussing with dressing gowns and knocks at the door was not an option. Also, the general wine list was pretty expensive, although the house wines were reasonable and well chosen.
We will definately go again, once the bank account has recovered from the last hit.
