We stayed only one night but booked well in advance. We advised that we wanted to make an early start on the day of departure and asked for a vegetarian breakfast-to-go. We were told this was not a problem and they said they took a pride in providing excellent breakfasts. At the time of booking they sent us photos of a gourmet breakfast feast. We were told that the breakfast would be ready to collect prior to departure.
When we checked in we found it a bit bureaucratic filling in the forms. The building was quite beautiful. Wonderful wooden panelling and stairwell.
The room was adequate but small. It was a comfortable bed but the aircon was noisy.
The breakfast-to-go should have been renamed breakfast-has-gone. As we left we collected our packs which had been left in the hallway. It felt quite impersonal that no-one was there to say goodbye and make sure everything was okay.
Unfortunately I had to complain about the lack of breakfast. One pack contained an egg, an apple, an orange and a bottle of still mineral water. The other had an apple, an orange juice and an egg. I managed to find a member of staff and said this wasn't acceptable or sufficient. I asked for something more substantial and eventually they provided another pack with one small slice of bread and two bite-size muffins. It was handed begrudgingly. Perhaps normal breakfasts in the dining room are better.
Conclusion. Nice house but very poor service. Lack of personality. More like a museum than a home. Not recommended.
