Staff could not have been more polite and helpful but we found the hotel a little on the shabby side. Waiting for breakfast in the dining room the lovely outlook to the garden was spoiled by the chairs and empty glasses of the night before not having been cleared. Breakfast was lovely when served but we had to sit in the dining room for almost an hour before our cooked breakfast came. I would suggest that on that particular weekend in April the hotel was understaffed. This hotel was sold to us a "boutique" hotel. I hesitate to be too critical because the staff could not be faulted however I do not consider this to be a boutique hotel. All the basics are there - beautiful setting, beautiful building but investment required and a more careful choice of furniture. Eclectic can be great but interior design was too random.
