The building looks the same as the last time we were here some 20 years ago.
Not much to impress on the outside.
But inside is another story. A multitude of lounges with big wood fires, comfortable couches and arm chairs wrapped around residents occupied with their knitting, crosswords, board games and children.
They have two restaurants, The Highland restaurant, which is only open for dinner and a Tavern Bar and Bistro. The Highland is fine dining and pricey
and, had it been possible, I would certainly have tried the food there.
The Tavern is very much like a ski lodge
with a split level room the lower part having a bar at one end,
including a mountain water dispenser,
a fine view along one side,
a central wood fire
and a pool table. It's warm and offers a sort of Spartan comfort.The menu is simple
and the food sustaining.
My papradelles with fetta and mushrooms would not be out of place in any bistro.
Time for a stroll.
