Beautiful old property, sympathetically decorated to meet expectations. Staff extremely attentive when required, never overly fussing, great balance to allow you to enjoy your quality time. Breakfast outstanding and just about every ingredient locally sourced and high quality. Being fussy, the hash browns could be brought into that fold and be made in house to finalise the best breakfast experience.
