The beds are huge and very comfy - great nights sleep! Bathroom was modern... More

Breakfast was excellent although tea in a large pot on a heater and coffee from a machine in the corner. A pot of tea or a cafetière on the table would make this 5 star in my... More

Du yus want anything else, yes more choice and better service from some staff. Prices are such that one would... More
