Beautiful location - the reason we choose it. However the upgrade work (which we knew about beforehand) was too intrusive - e.g. toilets in main building out of service for the duration of our stay so had to return to room each time. Staff also advised us that the breakfast service was limited as Hotel was quiet. The bar service was poor - e.g. had to search for someone to serve us and later to provide the bill.
