I have to say I think the breakfast is extraordinary, but I was so tired due to lack of sleep because of noise I didn't really feel like it.
We stayed on the Thursday before the bank holiday in August and yes, it was busy, but really there was no escape from noise, above us the floorboards creaked and the people staying there had very loud sex then and jaccuzi at 1am, behind us were a bunch of students or similar having a party, to the side of us were very inconsiderate people smoking under our window talking loudly and just not giving a toss. So if we wanted silence we needed to close all of the windows and put in earplugs, not ideal.
We had driven a very long way and just wanted some rest, this wasn't the place for it. The restaurant they recommended wasn't much chop either, very expensive and not that nice, over 100 Euros for two without wine is not my idea of value.
