We arrived just after 3pm and could find no-one to greet us or let us in. As we had pre-paid this posed a problem and we waited outside for at least half an hour. The telephone for the hotel went straight to fax signal, and in desperation I phoned a number on a people carrier in the carpark for another hotel and only from this contact was able to speak to the proprietor. Eventually the housekeeper arrived and let us in. Once in, the place is lovely, well thought out with clean comfortable beds, hot showers, large rooms and lovely views as others have noted. The breakfast was very good too and for that the hostess was evident. More attention needs to be paid to customer contact to alert them if there is a problem, and some kind of bell between the main house and the staff cottage would be a distinct advantage - when the housekeeper is there.
