The pool & the garden at the rear are certainly delightful. We had a room overlooking & hence had a quiet stay. I certainly wouldn't recommend a room at the front which I imagine would be pretty noisy. A great deal of cash has clearly been spent renovating the place. Our room was spacious & clean with beautiful curtains and a firm but comfortable double bed. The bathroom was however rather cramped. There was a shower OVER the bath rather than a proper shower. In addition, as a 6' 1" man, I found the bath too narrow, for it to be a relaxing experience.
As others have observed, the hotel restaurant is pretty expensive & offers no real choice. For whatever reason I craved an omlette & salad on arrival, which would seem a simple enough request but it was not available! The 2 course evening meal we did have, from the set menu was variable. The main course of Lamb we both had was tough but the desserts were excellent. Breakfast was OK - but slightly "fussy" & expensive for what was offered.
Unfortunately the local pizza restaurant - which looked interesting, was closed for the 2 nights we visited.
So with some reservations I will recommend - but ensure you take a room at the back overlooking the pool/garden & I would avoid their restaurant.
