Amazing location and attention to detail. Could not fault the visit to Surval. Staff were friendly and he experience and location wonderful. Could do with covered parking as it does get hot, but cannot find a negative.

We wished we'd booked a second night, rather than just one. A beautiful setting, luxurious rooms and superb, well priced dining made for a wonderful experience. Well worth a visit and we will most definitely be back!

Slightly off the beaten track, but well worth visiting. The whole place is so well laid out and maintained, really attractive, and the rooms are excellent - and unique, apart from a very comfortable sofa arrangement in my room there was also an old Aga wood-burning cooker as decoration! Beds were very comfortable and service was good. We had reserved... More

The breakfast buffet was all self-service, which is a great shame, as the staff were "mainly just hanging around, especially the chef". It would be more guest-friendly, if at least coffee and the toast/bread would be brought to the tables.
