Tranquil and serene, very surprising and fills up the senses. Friendly service, a hearty breakfast all makes for a great stay, in a beautiful location. We will do this again, and will tell our friends as well.

Funky and very different. from anything I have experienced before. Don't change anything. Very close to an English pub which is most important for me. This the second year running I have stayed and I will definitely be back again next year.
