We stayed at this hotel for my cousins wedding it was fantastic from the minute we checked in to the minute we left. All staff were fantastic food and hospitality was the most excellent service that anyone could have . Few issues with noise but slept well in the comfortable warm rooms would definitely recommend and come back again.
