Lovely hotel, beautiful grounds, great bedroom
Lovely hotel, beautiful well kept grounds, and a great bedroom with a large ensuite. Breakfast was freshly cooked, healthy and delicious in a lovely building. I would definitely use this hotel again when back in the area.

Too warm
The rooms was lovely but just too warm for comfort. The aircon was handy but blew directly onto the bed so it was impossible to find the right balance
