    Ruined the start of our holiday! They sold on our accommodation on the day of arrival. They emailed to say our payment card had been declined (no phone call!). Turns out the card hadn't been declined but they don't wish to take American Express cards!

    Beautiful hotel in lovely setting. BUT...Everything else was dreadful. Avoid at all costs....no room key! Rude un trained service. Dreadful food. When complaining buck was passed and we were told to e mail the owner?. Expensive mistake staying there.
