I have just returned from a weekend away with my mum (who has limited mobility). Amazing amazing location & so very easy to get to! We hadn't been in the hotel 10 mins & we were checked in to a ground floor room which accommodated our mobility issues & walking to the room several staff passing by offered to assist with our bags even though asked when checking in & we declined. Staff in this hotel have to be thee best of any hotel I have stayed in worldwide (usually take a hotel break every 8 wks in Ireland) from the cleaners right through to the amazing waiting staff.
The leisure facilities are wonderful & is topped off with the outdoor hot tub. Great access into the pool with walk in steps which once again was great for our mobility needs. The one issue was that the leisure complex is only accessible via the hotel by 2 flights of stairs no lift access which was very difficult. There was ramp access via the car park however this meant you had to exit the hotel walk around the back & access that way - not very disabled friendly. The hotel itself is presented very well clean & tidy & lovely décor.
The bedroom was at times quite cool heating seemed to be limited & also in dire need of a paint; a lot of marking n walls & damp in corners of windows & the bedding really needs a coloured throw to brighten up the all white linen. Otherwise the rooms were very spacious & very adequately furnished with seating & table, dressing table & good room to manoeuvre around. One element that does need to be developed is an information book in the room just about the hotel, local amenities, etc. I am very active when travelling & had to continually ask reception for information which would have been quite accessible from a welcome book in the room, which has always been standard in other hotels I have stayed.
The restaurant/breakfast was fantastic nothing but praise here yet again! Fine dining in the evening & endless selection at breakfast.
Overall a wee gem nestled in a wonderful location with staff & surroundings second to none. A very big pat on the back for management who obviously lead their staff very well; nothing was too much to ask of them. Would definitely recommend & return to this hotel - exceptional value for money & impeccable service!
