Innovative design and immense thought has obviously gone into the total renovation of the accommodation, incorporating modern features married seamlessly with a ‘real tree wood’ environment - retaining a traditional style with all the expected accoutrements of modern life.
I wasn’t going to mention the stunningly appointed William room, beautifully fitted by a local cabinet-maker using fine oak, where the only focus was obviously on quality. The soft furnishings were both tasteful and of a similar standard making the stay a delight.
The other issue I intended to avoid, was making any reference to the excellent food which arrived in generous portions. A nicely balanced and very reasonably priced wine list was also a pleasant surprise. The wines available were all from good honest sources.
The real purpose for writing was to address a most important aspect of ‘a good stay’ - the persons who can make it all happen.
The warmth and professionalism of the staff, for whom nothing was too much trouble, really did make the experience noteworthy, hence this posting. They totally reflect Roland and Carmela’s enthusiasm and commitment to a very worthy enterprise.
There is of course, always a downside. In this case it was of my own making - I should have booked for a longer stay! However, I can remedy this by returning later.
Well done, Roland and Carmela!
