We stayed a couple of nights in a standard double room which was fairly basic but clean. The owner and son were welcoming and helpful. The hotel is ideally situated for walking into town and the onsite parking is a big plus point for the area. The breakfast buffet was fine and the terrace is a lovely spot for taking breakfast.
We decided to take dinner in the evenings at the hotel and on reflection this was probably a mistake. You must pre-order during the day. The cooking was fine but guests are required to turn up all together and the food is brought out to serve everyone all at once. For slow eaters this can mean that the second course arrives just as you are about to pick up the fork for the first course - and don't expect to have time to drink your wine! It is the first time I have had a four course meal in under 45 minutes! I wondered if the chef and waiter had a bus to catch ... ! The waiter was actually very charming and presumably just bringing the food out from the kitchen as it came up. Maybe when the hotel is fuller, there is more of a natural pace to the service. Overall, the brisk pace meant there wasn't time to relax and enjoy the food and wine. On the other hand, families with young children might appreciate getting dinner over with quickly!
