Rooms were old (in a classic sense) and spacious but didn't have a fridge which we thought was odd. We also thought the restaurant was nothing special - despite... More

The staff is amazingly well trained, very caring but always discreet. We did not get to use the swimming pool, but it looked very appealing. The... More

We were upgraded to the suite in the turret, with a huge bed in a round, canopied room and a small, elegant sitting room with a Juliet balcony. We had beautiful views and plenty of peace and quiet. The room had Old... More
