Stayed over after attending a wedding. The room was lovely and overlooked the garden. It was very clean and spacious. The food was lovely at the wedding and also the next morning at breakfast. We will definitely stay again.

Very slow restaurant service and when food did come everything was cold including the gravy! Also had to return the extras bill upon checkout as charged for items we didn't have. Hotel itself and the staff were welcomig and everything was clean and well presented throughout! Pool and spa facilities were lovely and nice way to relax.
