We were very disappointed with our room no8. It was over the kitchen at the back of the hotel, where a fan was not turned off even at night, unless I asked them. Other than that the staff and the food were excellent.

Food was excellent - perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. Dining room atmosphere was peaceful and relaxed and the service was attentive but unobtrusive. Will definitely return and would highly recommend this restaurant. An excellent dining experience.

We had the tasting menu (dinner) with wine selection and each and every dish was perfection. The chef came out to explain a few of them which was great. A lovely way to spend a couple of hours. You won't be disappointed and I would recommend it again and again and again!
