Great room, beautiful surroundings. Only stayed one night for a wedding, lovely setting. Had meal in the bistro, food was very good and staff very pleasant. Next day we decided to have breakfast in our room and thoroughly enjoyed it and was beautifully presented. Would certainly recommend this hotel to friends and family.
