The property was lovely. Close to everything and great ambiance. Receptionist was very nice, efficient and personable. The bottle of wine for our anniversary was a lovely touch. Breakfast at both locations was a bit of a shambles unfortunately. Will go elsewhere for breakfast next time. Shame. Overall. Would stay again.

Out of the ordinary with loads of charm and terrific location. Very inviting with friendly staff. Extremely comfy beds. If I was forced to fault anything I'd say the ventilation in the room could have been better.
