Excellent hotel. Incredibly warm welcome, and the friendliest staff I have come across. We got a complimentary glass of wine when we arrived. Bedrooms were large, exceptionally well decorated and of a much higher standard than I expected.

I stayed here for 2 days last week whilst away with work and really enjoyed my time here. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the room spacious and fully equipped. The food in the restaurant was amazing. I am back for 3 days next week and can't wait to try more from the menu.
