With its old fashioned, attentive service, gilt showerheads, sunken baths and white tablecloths, you'd be forgiven for thinking stepping into this hotel is like stepping back in time.
Winter can be spent enjoying the indoor pool and sauna, whilst the outdoor pool is popular in summer and two croquet lawns encourage competition. Staff are optimistic and sunny and make you feel immediately welcome. Whether you want the sauna turned on or the fire lit, they are more than happy to help.
