Wonderful location and superior accommodation on the banks of the river. Beautiful breakfast and lovely staff. A major problem in the Otter Chalet however is the interior lighting. Three 20w globes are expected to light a kitchen, stairwell and large lounge. You need a torch inside at night to safely walk around.
