Excellent hotel, great location, very good value for money. Breakfast was of good quality, meals in the bar were good. The view from the room was fantastic. Perfect for a romantic weekend getaway. Would definitely stay there again.

Went away for a weekend with my friend to celebrate her birthday. Found the staff helpful and friendly but busy doing more than just their own specific job. I really liked the decor but my friend thought it was outdated. Just shows that it's all down to individual taste. The spa was small but didn't stop me enjoying our treatment... More

The hotel is clean , the food at the bar and in the restuarant is of a very high standard. The staff are great and nothing is a problem for them. My wife and I had a memorable weekrnd with old friends. Will definately go again.

My review of this hotel and SPA has to be split in to 2 as the hotel stay was great, the SPA was disappointing! Hotel: The room was decorated to a lovely boutique standard, bathroom was a bit dated and didn't quite match the same standard of the room, but it was very clean (which is the main thing!). The...

This hotel is looking tired and in need of refurbishment. This however is no excuse for a poor standard of general cleanliness. The rooms were not to bad but bathrooms were quite dirty. We were told that they only give a credit card receipt and not a proper itemised receipt. I have never come across this before This hotel has... More

Me and my partner had a mud rasul with the groupon, the treatment was great but the facilities seemed a little cramped. Staff were friendly and the facilities were clean. The music in the relaxing area was too loud to relax and the staff never arrived when we pressed the buzzer repeatedly from in there.

My husband, after about 15 mins trying to get hot water, had a bath. When he took the plug out the water just... More

We booked in for a mud treatment and a massage but it SO busy and understaffed that we were delayed by an hour. The staff were fantastic and it clearly wasnt their fault, i got the impression that...
