The hotel is lovely. The rooms are modern and very clean. The receptionist was not the friendliest or most helpful but all other hotel staff made up for her bad attitude. Breakfast and Dinner served at the hotel was beautifully presented and very tasty.

The service and quality of this hotel is consistently excellent and all of the staff go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. Nothing is too difficult or inconvenient for them.

Summary: I found the people who work at the hotel nice but the hotel was too expensive for what it provides. I couldn't use the pool (not hotel issue - due constant rain). In short very low value for money in my opinion.
