Booked the Heelis room, very nice, spacious room with beamed ceiling, and double bed with crisp cotton bedding, treetop view.
Bathroom large with roll top bath, separate rainwater shower and under floor heating.
On arrival, offered complimentary afternoon tea, which was a nice touch, and unexpected. Tea/coffee upon request.
Could not wait to write this review, having just had dinner and not experienced breakfast thus far.
Dinner, prepared by the 22 year old chef, was absolutely divine. Starters of brown crab bavarois with passion fruit & dressed white crab, scallops with white chocolate and truffle risotto, beautifully presented and packed with flavour. Mains of sea bream and cod followed then to top it off, lemon tart and blackcurrant and liquorice soufflé.
The meal was innovative, cooked to perfection, using mainly locally sourced ingredients, we were extremely impressed.
If breakfast is of this standard, we will be returning home in good spirits (even though the weather has tried it’s best to dampen them! – is this really July?)
We look forward to returning sooner rather than later.
