Another wonderful stay at this excellent hotel. Michael, the owner showed us round the newly refurbished rooms. They are amazing. The new library is very comfortable and relaxing. Our bedroom, although not yet refurbished, was spotlessly clean & a good size. The food is first class with a very good choice for breakfast and evening meal. We can't wait to...

This was our third visit to this lovely hotel and we will definitely visit again. Although we just missed the newly refurbished rooms coming online we were lucky enough to get a sneak preview. Not only is this lovely hotel emerging from a state of hibernation but the staff and facilities on offer are just beyond compare to other hotels....

Michael and his team were very welcoming. Food was top notch. The hotel is going through major refurbishment but it did not effect our stay there. If booking in the next 6-8 weeks ask to stay in one if the refurbished rooms. Jeff and Maria.

Horrible rooms not worth the money do yourself a favour and stay somewhere else. The owner has a real attitude when you complain and basically told us to go elsewhere knowing that it was a busy weekend and everywhere else was booked.
