          Full of character and set up to exploit the extensive garden dining and social area. The bedrooms are charming, the staff friendly and professional, the food is excellent and their wine by the glass (a French Sauvignon Blanc) was delicious.

          Would it be possible to make part of the hotel for residents only? Our stay was spoilt by the unbearable noise Friday and Saturday night made by local drinkers. There was no room anywhere for our group to have a 'quite' coffee after a meal. The residents lounge, bar and patio areas were full to capacity, we even had trouble getting through the entrance to return to our room. Told by a staff member that even the private garden was not available for hotel guests. Shame as your hotel was in a perfect position for touring the area. Otherwise we would look forward to staying again but not while the noise problem remains.
