The staff was great. The bar lively with good food (and cute bartenders). The breakfast was good. I could not say anything bad -- it was worth every penny.

... curry and the wonderfully English (again) trifle for dessert, it was a lovely end to a lovely day and we made our nest in the beautifully fitted out guest suite and slept well!
