Situated at the edge of a lovely peaceful village up a narrow lane the hotel looks so inviting on arrival. We had a lovely reception from the young man when we checked in and were shown to our rooms quickly and politely. We had adjacent rooms on the top floor and they were both beautiful. Lovely views, super comfy beds ,well appointed and absolutely spotless. Both had great ensuite wet rooms too. First impressions count and they won us over in the first few minutes. We just relaxed like previous reviewers told us we would. We were booked in for dinner that night and it didn't disappoint. The lovely story about the gentleman who dined alone there every month kept us enthralled whilst enjoying pre dinner drinks and trying to choose what to eat. The restaurant is both formal and cosy, if that's possible and again everything is immaculately clean. The food was amazing, we enjoyed every morsel, from the parfait to the steak to the lemon posset , our daughters , whose birthdays we were celebrating loved it all . It was such a good choice for a surprise. Attentive and polite service throughout by the waitresses and waiter.The lovely waitress even knew what a miniature Guinness shot was , and we enjoyed them with our coffee after dinner in the cosy lounge. We slept wonderfully and can't fault the comfy beds etc. It is so quietI, I can't describe how lovely it is to have such peace. Great breakfast in the morning and again very attentive service. Cannot fault anything about this place . Just perfect. The little card about the next day's weather put under the door just says it all really . Next time we wil stay for longer and unwind properly. We loved it. Thank you , there is a heaven after all. less
