Greeted by friendly, cheerful staff and promptly checked in. We were hoping for a room with a better view, but as there were none available, and we had plenty to do during our stay, it wasn't really an issue.
The hotel had, very kindly, provided an anniversary cake and card upon arrival. This was such a lovely touch and much appreciated gesture. We had booked an executive package which included free wifi access for the duration of our stay.
I found the breakfast staff attentive, bringing tea/coffee and toast as soon as we were seated. Also the choice of both hot and cold options were quite adequate. They didn't seem to have pastries but I am not sure if they were just not stocked up when I was looking for them.
Both the restaurant and bar had great atmosphere as well as great food. The ballroom had been set up for an event during our stay and looked stunning.
Overall, great hotel, fantastic location. We definitely plan to return.
