This is the third hotel our group has visited for a Turkey & Tinsel weekend break and our unanimous verdict was 'Terrific!' Location, staff, food, entertainment, thoughtful touches, and a great atmosphere - which, of course, our group of 27 contributed to.

Cannot fault anything with this hotel. All staff are friendly; very helpful and efficient. Rooms are kept to a very high standard. The food is excellent. Very high standard in all respects.
