Boutique does not do this hotel justice, it more than this suggests. The history of the site is fascinating with the hotel being an old priory. Part of the complex is the Grand Hall, formerly a church. This is utilised mainly for weddings and the weekend clientele may be dominated by wedding guests.
The rooms vary with the suites large and differing in shape. Breakfasts are continental with a heavy German influence ie sausage, cheese and wonderful pastries baked locally. It is also part of the room rate. There is no room service or mini-bar but this is not required given the Mink's Bar which offers drinks and soup/sandwiches etc. There are also a number of restaurants nearby.
Henry, the concierge, is a font of knowledge and provides many helpful suggestions/recommendations. He is also one of the shuttle drivers. This is one of the key services. The shuttle will drop one off within a certain area and then pick up "on demand". WiFi is free as is the small self-service business centre.
The overall impression is warm, very friendly and helpful. Don't hesitate just go
