    Very comfortable stay with excellent attention by staff. Two minor glitches were that the young man who served us dinner didn't ask us to taste the wine before serving it and we also had to reqquest an ice bucket.

    Very nice boutique style. We stayed there one night passing through and can advise it, because they serve a lovely dinner and have thrir own wine. Lovely house, nice garden. Too cold for the pool unfortunately

    We stayed there in September last year and had absolutely no problem in booking. I booked on line and we had a large room for the two of us. The connecting room was free so we could have had that as well.
