"Loved the setting and the peace. Food average, public rooms atmosphere austere. However our "junior Suite" was very well placed and most comfortable and most of the staff tried very hard. A mini guide to alternative eating opportunities would have been most helpful. However, this was a great way to end our visit and spend 6 days doing NOTHING,"
