The hotel was very warm and welcoming. Management & Staff were very friendly and helpful, the bedrooms were well decorated and furniture was outstanding. Menus for the restaurant and bar were extensive and as my wife is a Coeliac we had no problem with this.

The service was fast and very efficient and the burger excellent.... More
