Management and i stayed here for four nights of our holiday and we absolutely loved it. it is run by a very charming Frenchman and his equally charming Scottish wife with help from their physicist son and musician daughter. Eric the owner does all the cooking and does so because he is a serious enthusiast. The place is in need of some practical renovation so some doors won't shut unless they are locked etc but this is a very impressive Regency building with absolutely stunning views from all the main rooms. What it isn't is the Hilton so disabuse yourself of the notion that everything will happen in an immaculately ordered way. What does happen does so with such overwhelming charm and enthusiasm that you find yourself sitting with an ear-to-ear grin most of the time. Eric is a seriously keen cook and like a lot of those tends to harbour a belief that there is always room for one more ingredient! notwithstanding that the food we had was universally very good and i had a rack of lamb one night that was to die for. So we really recommend this but only if you are prepared to go with the flow. if you are on a tight timetable go somewhere else, although you will not find anywhere close where the food even starts to get close.
