I didn't have a chance to enjoy the stay properly, as l booked last minute for a few hours. The room itself was small and clean but needs attention to details. The view was not one of the great l had. Easy check in. The food in the restaurant was lovely and the staff was friendly.

Hotel's Favourite
Absolutely amazing time, first time back in a few years, will not be leaving it as long again. Staff went above and beyond the call of duty during an unfortunate medical issue, they responded quickly and discreetly without fuss. When this was resolved and we could relax they were attentive and helpful, changing our booking times for a meal without question.The food was spectacular, from breakfast through to our evening meals. The bar staff were quick to serve our drinks, the staff in the restaurant were so pleasant and ready to help you if you needed it without hovering over you. They couldn't do enough for us. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and spacious and even though there is a refurbishment going on we were not disturbed at all so our break was not disrupted at all, in fact the only reason we know there was work being carried t was because we walked past a room that workmen were in. A special word of thanks to Ryan on the front desk, an absolutely amazing young man who helped us and we could never convey to him how grateful we are to him. Can't wait to go back again

This is an excellent hotel, refurbished to a very high standard. The rooms were large and all linen was fresh and clean. The meals were excellent and good sized portions. The staff were very friendly and knew a lot about the surrounding area. Highly recommended it will not be long to we are back.

Could not recommend this place enough! We stayed for one night and had the here comes the girl package, on arrival we were met by a lovely receptionist who guided us to where the spa and rooms where located, we then went to have our spa package. Absolutely incredible the spa therapist is fantastic at her job and Michelle at reception was very accommodating to us regarding hot tub use; thank you again Michelle! Food in the restaurant was absolutely beautiful both the evening meal and breakfast. Drinks were lovely and very reasonably priced. All the staff were incredible and we loved our stay. And the beds…amazing! They were so comfortable 🥰 Cannot wait to return
