We stayed here over easter (4 ladies). The staff were very helpful especially with getting us to the train station to carry on our journey. They went out their way to make sure we got out train and tickets. The chef and waiters were so kind- meeting all are requested never mind how big or small. The food was amazing-... More

Some features of the architecture are carefully maintained. Service and staff are excellent, though improvements are needed. Hotel has a broadband connection, and guests can use it only in the reception area, where... More
