The ambience in the hotel is great, especially at dinner when the grand piano is being played.... More

I tend to avoid 'fine dining' restaurants for this very reason and prefer a tasty Indian, Thai or Italian meal with lots of taste and flavour. Traditional restaurant food can be very bland... More

Beautiful bedroom and extremely comfortable bed, sumptuous food, amazing wine and excellent service. Nothing to complain about, a bit pricey but perfect for a couples retreat or special occasion. Would definitely go back ....

We stayed here as part of a very large conference and I was extremely impressed. The hotel is stunning, staff incredibly courteous and polite and food and drink incredibly good given how many people they were serving. I can see why this venue is very popular for weddings as the restaurant and surroundings are beautiful. I hope I will return... More
