This place never fails to impress and improve. The location in itself is stunning, but it's the attentiveness of the staff which makes this place what it is. And the food.........is to die for! Cannot wait to return.

Very friendly staff on arrival. Nice room and excellent, served breakfast. Just a pity rooms are separate from the restaurant. Had to dress for the snow, the morning we stayed.
