We were greated nicely on arrival, showed around the room and encouraged to take a look around the property. We enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere of the place, coming and going as we pleased. We booked the degustation dinner in the restaurant for both nights. Received excellent & friendly service along with great food & a very good range of fabulous wines. You certainly don't leave hungry. Breakfast was also very nice with italian style hash browns and poached egg.
As with other reviews the only criticism I have is a lack of adequate heating in the rooms. I guess it is authentic italian style reminding me of the heating in some hotels in northern Italy. Overall a very enjoyable weekend would highly reccommend it and will consider going back with friends. I didnt see the cat but as an animal lover it wouldnt bother me having it around, anyway in Europe people take their dogs everywhere which is nice!!
