    I enjoyed my stay here, it's so unusual and that what makes it so good. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We ate in the hotel restaurant and the food was excellent. The parking was free but on the road outside the hotel.

    Our little dog was always welcome in the hotel but obviously not in the dining room. Ask about their very famous guest (a marquis) and his dogs!
