The first thing that struck me was just how friendly everyone was. From check in to bar staff and everyone we encountered -... More

It was a surprise for me and he was really excited to spoil me for a day. We got to the hotel at about 1.30 (he was told check... More

Checking in no information given on where the restaurant was despite booking a table and no information given on breakfast times.

Visited during lunchtime and it took some time to get eye contact from a very busy waitress who did her best despite obvious understaffing. Considering this she did a great job. Will go back but will reserve a table in advance next time

myself and my partner decided to go there for a night. Our room was immaculate, very friendly staff and we got a great deal on breakfast and dinner! Food was tasty, nice range of desserts. We had a late check out too which gave us a bit more time to explore in the morning.
