Very nice hotel in a picturesque location

Pros: Spacious and picturesque
Cons: Allocation of rooms according to age and physical ability
Location: Good location and plenty of walks well signposted. Perhaps some evening entertainment could be considered
Very good break. Only disappointments were number of steps to climb to rooms despite all of us being around 70 years old and for dinner main courses vegetables were luke warm meat was difficult to digest.
