My husband and I were treated with style for our 10 year anniversary weekend. We were gifted a bottle of champagne and some strawberries and was treated with such class. We loved it. The bed was comfortable, the room service was amazing and the spa bath was incredible. Can't wait to come back and stay again.

Everything was absolutely first rate, from the excellently professional and friendly check in to the spacious, stylish and very well appointed room. Obviously not running at quite 100% due to current restrictions, but even these didn’t really crimp their style and was such a good experience that I can’t wait to go back when things are 100% again or maybe even before.
