When booking, my partner and I were a little concerned by the 2 star rating of this hotel. However, these fears were totally unjustified. This is high class accommodation serving top end food with attentive, helpful staff and managers.
It’s a small hotel in an isolated, but easily accessible location. This means that the “atmosphere” in the dining room at night is very much dictated by the nature of the people in residence at the time. Over the three nights we stayed it ranged from formal to very friendly. Nevertheless, fellow guests aside, you will not be disappointed by this hotel and, like many others, we thoroughly recommend it.
