    We were made to feel welcome from the moment we entered the hotel. The information about the hotel and its facilities and knowledge of the locality was excellent. This was a small but good quality place to stay and we would certainly return. The staff were very attentive and the food was delicious.

    The only negatives for us were minor. Curtain hooks were missing and we had patio doors onto a balcony which were fixed and would not open. The room was quite hot in the evening and it would have been nice to be able to sit out on the balcony. Perhaps this is reserved for summer months.

    Nicely decorated and comfortable. Breakfasts were lovely with plenty of choice.

    Bar prices very expensive which was the reason we did not have dinner at the hotel in the evenings.

    I really enjoyed the steam room and the breakfast :)

    I was woken up in the middle of the night by very a loud noise. I had to call a staff to find out where that noise come from, which turned out to be the fire exit left open. The moring after, I did not recieve any apologies for the inconvenience.

    Staff was kind and room and bathroom were clean. Foods were almost good.

    The only pity thing was that bacon was burned black since it was cooked with other chiken etc together in the same dish.
