Perfect stay. Spotlessly clean. Lovely food. Great staff. Good entertainment. Only on the Saturday evening the entertainment couldn't make it so we had none that evening. Out of the hotel's control but maybe a contingency plan for such situations in the future.

As reported by previous guests the hotel is a little tired but we believe that it is undergoing some refurbishment. We were not in a refurbished room but this did not spoil our stay. We had plenty hot water, the room was clean and we had lovely "fluffy" towels. The food was lovely and served by a very pleasant young... More

We arrived very late at night and the staff had actually left the hotel, but arrived quickly when the taxi driver phoned to tell them we had arrived. They even offered to open the bar for us, which we really didn't need but it was very kind of them to ask. The rooms were very nice, the breakfast was good... More
