Clean pleasant room
Clean pleasant room with large walk-in shower. Located behind their Italian restaurant so having to go through the restaurant to get to/from the rooms in the coach-house at the back is a minor inconvenience. They are not providing a proper Breakfast service at the moment (due to Coronavirus) - only a bag which you need to collect from the restaurant. Both days the contents were the same - cheese/ham sandwich, banana, small orange juice and a yogurt - a bit disappointing.

It would be good to do something about the extractor fan in toilet. It goes on far too long once you left the toilet which meant a disturbed nights sleep as it’s very loud Breakfast more like a lunch pack. Would have been nicer to have something like a croissant and small pot jam than a warm sand which. Other than that had a lovely stay you have lovely friendly staff and room was nice thank you

Not really a hotel
This 'hotel' is really a restaurant which also has hotel like rooms. You have to knock to enter and go into the restaurant to sign in. We were then taken out, across a courtyard to an external coach house like building. As it was pouring down all the time we were there this wasnt pleasant. To get out we had to through the restaurant, by unlocking some French windows in an extension standing in the rain between an awning and the building as we did so. My colleagues room was very cold and the hair dryer didn't work. There were no menus for breakfast. We left late as the rain had become snow and blocked some roads but one of the staff walked straight into our rooms without knocking, before checkout time. Still staff were helpful.Good showers.
