    Beautique at its best
    It was really well laid out, the shower had a unique feature where you could see out onto the room where the bath was located. The bed was very comfortable and supportive. The evening meal which consisted of squid ink risotto and scallops was delectable, as was the champagne and the breakfast the following morning. The way in which the hotel has been run and maintained is excellent.

    Lovely hotel and lovely, helpful staff. I stayed on a very warm day and the room was hot to sleep in at night. A fan was provided, which helped a lot.

    Great boutique hotel for a bit of luxury.
    Had a fantastic stay at this great place. Super room - not much space but we loved the style and luxury.
