My first time at this hotel. Stayed for one night on business. Reception was very efficient and this was appreciated after a long drive. The room was very comfortable, a little warm for my liking but I don' t feel the cold that easily. I opened the window and that sorted the problem. The bed was fine, the room spotlessly clean, I liked the sparkly bathroom floor!
I ate at the restaurant on the hotel site (Bartellas) it's not in the main body of the hotel but a 5 minute walk from the end of the car park. The food was excellent. They have a varied choice with 2 and 3 course fixed price menus around £20. The staff were very attentive and friendly. My only comment would be that the route to the restaurant wasn't well lit at the outset near the trees but this is only a minor point and would not deter me from going again.
Breakfast was lovely and freshly cooked to order, always preferable to buffet style bulk cooked offerings you get in a lot of hotels.
There is no lift at the hotel but assistance is offered with your bags if you need it.
Overall a short but pleasant stay. I would definitely use this hotel again.
