Top service and a nice stay. I would definitely stay at a MacDonald hotel again...hopefully in the near future! I would recommend to family, friends and colleagues. The food and wine was excellent and the room meticulously presented. Thank you!

Good value package with generous evening meal allowance. Staff friendly and helpful. Room good, pillows ineffective but shower fabulous. Spa treatments not great this time but have been very good in the past.

I'd read some of the reviews and was a bit dubious about booking but I'm glad I did. The staff were friendly and professional. I spoke to some... More

The hotel facilities were excellent with Spa, Gym and Golf. View and the surrounding was lovely. However the restaurant services were pretty poor, both for dinner and breakfast. Long wait for a table.

Service can only be described as farcical, like a stay in fawlty towers. From check in to check out we had issues, at the end it was laughable. Communication seems to be a major issue at this venue. Won't be back.
