then this is the place for you! Completely off the beaten track (you won't come across this hotel by accident), we enjoyed a fantastic experience through from booking to when we left. We had an overnight stay, with gourmet dinner and paired wines, followed by breakfast the next morning. The staff were welcoming and helpful, with nothing being too much trouble - in fact, after dinner we had our coffee in the bar lounge and, even though we were the only people in there, the fire was lit for us. We were also delighted to be able to take our dog with us (she loved it and settled in immediately!) and a water bowl was provided for her in our room.
It would have been nice to have tea/coffee making facilities in the room to accompany the delicious homemade biscuits. However, we went down to the lounge for tea in the afternoon, which was served with more of the biscuits - result! I did write to the hotel about this afterwards, and was advised that tea/coffee facilities would have been provided on request - I think this could be made clearer as it appears that only room service is available.
We were on a living social offer, which made this break affordable for us, but the hotel also has special offers on their website. Definitely worth it as a treat.
