Beautiful old country house hotel, although located in the centre of the town. Smooth and easy check-in and very helpful staff. Room was spotless and very comfortable. Dinner in the evening was first class, although most of the wines on their Wine list were way out of our budget!! However, the house red was perfectly reasonable and a nice wine. Easy to recommend this hotel as it has so much going for it and would definitely stay again.
