In a group of ten old friends (nearly all octogenarians) we visited for the fourth year running, and we have all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, no complaints from anybody. And all being well, we'll be back again next year at the same time. We all had very nice comfortable rooms, en-suite with a good shower. The hotel refurbishment looks complete now,... More
