This hotel is a family run hotel and it has a pleasant friendly atmosphere. It sits in a very scenic location. You are surrounded by beautiful hills. The room I had was very clean and more than adequate. The bathroom is large with a shower as well as a bath. There is not air conditioning but you can get a fan and there were plenty. The food is home made and reasonable in price. It was quiet but not that far from the town a 10-15 minute walk. I would recommend this hotel for an idyllic peaceful holiday. It has a 3 star rating and certainly deserves it

We were on a Leger Silver Service Holiday and frankly expected a better quality hotel. The staff were pleasant and the breakfast was good, the evening meal was poor quality and very over priced in comparison to meals in the town. The rooms were clean but very basic and the walls were very thin as two of our daughters in the next room were able to tell us exactly what we were doing in our room and what the people above them and next door to them were doing and discussing. The views where very good and the hotel was a short walk from the lovely town and better quality and value food. Not what I call silver service and very sad as the rest of the trip was very good.
The hotel was at the end of a long narrow lane and every night th coach struggled to get to the hotel and on several occassions we had to walk, the first night it took nearly an hour to get it into the hotel partly because it was a silver sevice coach and longer than the average ones, not what you want after a long coach journey.

We stayed as a family of three on a Leger coach holiday common with most other reviews here.
The accommodation - We were a family of three full fee paying adults (despite our daughter being 15) opting for one room.
So what we had, I would suggest was a standard double room with another bed shoe horned into the corner. Which meant it only had a small desk plus two chairs... Why put fitted wardrobes in hotel rooms? Where do you leave three peoples luggage if you can't put them on top of them! They end up just lying around the floor.
We had the usual selection of minor gripes with the room, which we were prepared to live with, see pics, ie exposed pipes in the shower, shower door hanging off, phone socket hanging out, rather primitive concertina door affair on the toilet/shower room, basic TV with remote held together with tape, okay we could live with that.
But when the metal roller blind stuck down (cleaners close them apparently) leaving us in like a darkened cell as no natural light could come in, by day two of it being stuck (and our complaints to the hotel manager had achieving nothing) we complained officially to the drivers and it was repaired the next day. Still...two nights we endured with it stuck down.

Breakfast - very minimalistic: lady serving tea or coffee, no self service, one choice of cereal, one bowl of yoghurt, no fresh fruit, some bread roll things in plastic bags, couple of assorted bread baskets with bread which would have benefited from a toaster, (not provided) ham, cheese, mini jam/honey pots, boiled eggs and that was about your lot!
After the first couple of days your enthusiasm wains about getting to breakfast early once you realise that was it! Come early or late. Even the UK pot noddle in your room starts to look appealing!

Evening meal we didn't bother with, can't comment but for the price, (won't divulge that) but for less you can go down town and have a drink a one course meal, possibly a cheap desert and still come under their price for evening meal. Usually we went down in a group so you can have a look around etc.

Other facilities - well rely can't think of much else, no swimming pool, gym or jacuzzi, there was inside lounge, TV room, sun chairs outside, (overlooking the coach/car park) When the manager was around she would do drinks. But to be honest we did not spend that much time at the hotel.
One thing I will mention on a positive is that how speedily the manageress got her own doctor out to see my wife for insect bites.

General points - the hotel has nice views, reasonably close walking distance to the town, although you are rather taking your life into your hands with the local drivers as there are no pavements for the first part.

In conclusion - the hotel did put a bit of a dampener on the holiday, a nice hotel can just set your holiday off! Unfortunately for a 3 star (not sure who awarded them that, or if they just put it on themselves) this did not live up to expectations. When even the coach drivers had not heard of it, (both experienced guys, who incidentally I could'nt fault) Had to drive around back roads looking for it, this should have rung alarm bells!
Why were they changing hotels(Leger)? I am not going to make any comments here myself, but ask yourself...in today's current economical climate, with rising prices, margins are slimmer, where does one look to cut costs?

our family had three rooms in this hotel. the rooms were spotless, all three rooms faced different directions but the view from our twin room was amazing! the three rooms had different types of bathrooms but all en-suite and with plenty of hot water. The walls were very thin . It was only a short stroll into town - about 10 minutes.
Breakfast was exactly as described by a reviewer above. We found the optional evening meal had a wonderful traditional italian starter, but the main was usually a bit of meat or fish of some kind with chips, boiled potato or what tasted like instant mash one night! there was a choice of two dishes for each course except pudding. i found the food to be too salty at times but that may be my english taste! we ate in town a couple of nights but i must admit we didn't find that much better and after a tiring day it is really handy to have eating at the hotel an option.
the hotel had a nice relaxed and cool feel about it, the meals were always served on time, and the staff were very friendly.

Rooms basic. Meals--breakfast , good, Evening meals supplied upon request but lacked variety and no choice of vegetables. Dining room felt very cool even when full of people.Felt cost of evening meals had were not value for money.
Several rooms have no view except onto an unkempt garden.

Well I can't agree entirely with the above review. I too did a Leger tour but have to say that this (& many others they have on their books) is very very basic. The rooms just have a bed, & a wardrobe & a desk/table. There are no pictures on the walls which makes it look very sparse. Some of the rooms (for single travellers) are very very small. The staff were friendly and helpful but the food we had was edible but again very basic (though their soups were lovely).
I have to agree that the location was very picturesque-but the hotel is down a very long lane off the main street and it is dark.
So overall a clean but VERY BASIC hotel
