I usually never like to eat in the Hotel, but this restaurant is with the exception. The chef was special, the food choices were varied and good. The prices were fair, two course at 49 Euro, three for 59 Euro and the service and presentations were special. For the main courses, all the guests food was uncovered together to enhance... More

We ate here recently for a special occasion. From the moment we arrived it was a lovely evening. We arrived a bit early and had a drink in the garden at the back of the hotel. There were a group of ladies finishing afternoon tea which looked lovely. We had the goats cheese salad and the scallops for starters. The... More

I have had two visits here recently one to celebrate a confirmation and a second visit for afternoon tea-just using up gift vouchers. The confirmation visit for lunch was sub-standard as I had expected more from this five star hotel. Starters were fine but the main courses had surprising minuscule portions; actually I thought it was another starter when the... More

Staff are very attentative without being annoying and you will never have to fill your own wine or water.
