Staff here are very friendly but attention to detail is lacking. We had a hole in the plastering of our "superior" room ,the toilet cistern refused to flush and this was not rectified despite 2 reminders. There is no lighting at the sitting end of the room, which is a nonsense. The evening menu seems not to change. Thee is... More

We stopped for dinner and were not disappointed. The portions were generous and the food was delightful. The staff are very helpful and nothing is a problem for them. The restaurant is blessed with a lovely view of the Holy Isle, which is lovely to see in the evening light. All I all a pleasure.

Beautiful location and hotel nicely situated. Room comfortable with nice touches throughout. Stayed for 2 days, dinner and breakfast were both tasty. Only complaint would be the mattress in our room as it was long past its sell by date, springs were noisy and uncomfortable to lie on - if I had been staying any longer, I would have requested...

Dear Guest Thank you for taking time out of your day to give us a review. It is a shame that you didn't tell us about your mattress as it would have been changed immediately as we do have new spare mattresses available and rely on housekeeping and guests to let us know when they need changed. House keeping shall... More

My husband and I booked to come for our first anniversary and had just the best time. The staff are wonderful and can't do enough for you. The views are second to none and the setting is simply amazing: sitting eating breakfast looking over at the holy isle. I have read other reviews on here with a mixture of amusement... More

We stayed here for my son's 16th birthday and got room 4, which was very spacious and even with two double beds still had space for a three seater sofa and an armchair giving a lovely seating area. The views from the window over the Holy Isle were incredible but unfortunately when sitting down you could not see out. Its... More

Dear Guest Thank you for taking the time out of your day to give us a review. It is a shame that after such a good start with the compliments on your room that things seem to go down hill for you. The furniture in the bedrooms are more comfortable for the end of the day so you can sit... More
