The hotel consists of several low-rise buildings and a few houses situated in beautifully landscaped grounds. Our room was large and very comfortable in chic rustic style with turquoise touches and river rocks in the decor. We had an enormous bath and separate shower - shutters could be opened by the bath so you could have a conversation with anyone in the room. If you wanted to. A working fireplace was a nice amenity; we enjoyed sitting out on our little patio overlooking the gardens with our glass of wine; other guests would say a friendly hello as they passed. The rooms are not recommended for vegetarians - the closets are covered with cowhide and the light-fittings look like (perhaps are?) antlers. The rooms are a bit dim - there was a huge armchair, but you couldn't sit and read in it, as there was no light behind or even near. The bed coverings were a bit weighty.
We did have one problem, not the hotel's fault, but well-solved: Our neighbors arrived back late and started playing music at a deafening volume. A call to the front desk had security arriving and they restored calm.
It's an easy walk into town - the entrance to the hotel does need to have a pathway to the road for pedestrians. It can be busy when there's is a wedding on for example and turning traffic finds foot traffic on the pavement.
