This historic hotel has a beautiful setting. The public areas are truly lovely and the staff charming and helpful without being obsequious. All the meals we had were delicious and excellently presented. It's a shame then that we felt let down by the bedrooms, which need upgrading into the 21st century. The rooms (bedroom and lounge) were a reasonable size but the bathroom was small with no storage space. It's difficult to believe that such a hotel does not have a fridge in the room and that the very noisy airconditioning was so ineffective - but we'd go there again.
