Two couples one in room 107, the others (us) in 207 both with jacuzzi's. Huge rooms, high ceilings and no noise transmission. The decor is boutique(ish). The staff were excellent and front of house were all (I believe) Lithuanian. This is an observation only. We had no language problems and I was amused to read a previous reviewer criticise the manager for her bazaar English (perhaps she really meant that she came from a market?)
We "ate in" and also had breakfast the next morning. There was nothing to complain about and much to applaud. For the evening meal my blue cheese and walnut salad was tasty and copious, the minted lamb chops with chive mash delicious. My companions were equally complimentary about their various choices. The variety of choice at breakfast time was very interesting. I'm not a veggie but I had the vegetarian breakfast - wonderful (scrambled eggs with tarragon, creamy herbed mushrooms, etc)
There were no electric shaving points in the bathrooms and no light above the mirror, which is unusual.
I understand that the hotel is going through a phase of transition but considering that it is owned by a restaurateur/business man who also owns one of the local rugby teams, one would imagine that the standard will be good.
