We stayed here as part of a tour group. The place is lovely, beautiful gardens. A lovely wood fire in our room was really great
The drawback was the food. The town itself virtually closed at sunset so we were really at the mercy of the hotel.
The staff are really nice and we were "assigned" our servant. If you have ever watched Faulty Towers we had Manuel.
The meal was pretty awful. My husband ordered soup which was basically water with some vegetables floating in it. He also had a beet and egg salad. What arrived was a small bread and butter sized plate with 1 small beet root, sliced ,with a slice ( not a whole) of boiled egg on top.
My beef sandwich wasn't terrible but wasn't great.
The breakfast wasn't much better. Funniest thing was the rationing of butter pats. When you asked for butter it was doled piece by small piece by Manuel.
Having said that ... The inn itself is lovely
