It had stunning views, however, we were told we had to wait 25 minutes for food as there was a large table needed to be served first. All tables following us got told this as well. We were there with my 92 year old Mother for... More

I really struggle with hotel bar prices in general and I stay in many on business, but some are just plain greedy (a small bottle of diet coke used for a mixer was £3.20!!!!) Two drinks : small glass of house white wine with a lemonade mixer and a Smirnoff vodka... More

Had an amazing day at the spa. All the staff were so friendly and made us feel really welcome. We had a lovely lunch downstairs between treatments and the service was excellent. Everywhere is spotlessly clean - will definitely be coming back here.

Upon arrival at the 2nd floor spa reception we were greeted by a very warm and welcoming lady, whose name escapes me. She explained the procedures etc and showed my husband around the male section then me around... More

A slice of heaven! The Espa products on offer are gorgeous, fluffy towels, serene, quiet and so relaxing. View from the Jacuzzi is one of the best in the world. Professional, courteous staff.
