One in a million
The attention to detail here is second to none. From antique embroidered linen napery to the exquisite delicacies for breakfast, nothing is hasty, commercial or formulaic. You feel as if you are a private guest in a treasured home, one where traditional standards are reverently maintained. But this doesn't make it stuffy or old fashioned - no, the sense of fun and theatre in the decor is exciting and stimulating. Everything is confidently executed and the standard of finish is high. If you love the predictability of international 5-star hotels, then you may be uneasy about this place with its very individualistic style. But if you prefer adventure, originality and utter charm, you will love it. The bed was a dream, the water hot and plentiful, the books intriguing, and the chatelaine the very incarnation of kindness and care. The courtyard garden is a masterclass in shade gardening. We will go back whenever the chance allows.
