This is literally an 18th century palace, with beautiful mature gardens. The best rooms are in the actual palace, but like most visitors I stayed in one of the modern rooms in one of two wings which have been attached to the old palace building. All guests can use the ground floor rooms, which contain furniture appropriate for the setting. The restaurant is there too and it is excellent, with reasonable prices and some interesting wines.
Some of the rooms have a terrace, with table and chairs, where smoking is permitted. There is no cover, but the weather was fine during my visit.
There is an outdoor pool, a chinese-style summer house and a small aviary in the gardens. A spa, indoor pool and gym are also available.
The staff were excellent, though there was a slight hiccup when a pair of trousers that I sent to the laundry disappeared for half a day.
