I'm writing this review on behalf of my mum. She loved her stay here, she said the staff were fantastic and the hotel was faultless. She stopped at a 4 star on the same trip and said it didn't have a patch on this hotel. She said to say thank you for a fantastic stay. X X

The hotel itself exceeded out expectations, decor was very nice, grounds beautiful, hotel was spotlessly clean with room service daily. Food in the evenings,whilst not a great deal of choice, was nice and always hot and quick considering also that we were with... More

Sadly entertainment was disappointing. You would think the hotel would review the response of guests to entertainment provided. It would b in their own interest to perhaps spend a little bit more and keep guests entertained and visiting bar rather than retiring to their rooms early to escape!!! Overall experience in Hotel good, staff very polite and nice but to... More
