Fodor’s Expert Review

This modern country-house hotel—blending an 18th-century manor house and a 21st-century addition—exudes contemporary style throughout, both in the rooms and the extensive, elegant gardens. The manor house is reserved for suites and favors dark drapes, claw-foot baths, and plumes of feathers. Guest rooms in the modern wing have contemporary furnishings and some have balconies overlooking the garden. The championship golf course is open to guests, the spa is an oasis of calm and pampering, and the urban beach invites relaxation on hot days.

  • plenty of amenities
  • lovely gardens

CONS
