We visited this hotel as a prospective venue for our forthcoming wedding. Although we booked a room to stay the night, unfortunately our plans changed and we had to head home sooner than expected. We therefore arrived entirely unannounced but within 10 minutes we had the personal attention of the Deputy Manager and a member of staff from Head Office who happened to be there (even the General Manager introduced himself and welcomed us warmly!). We were given a full tour of the hotel and facilities and at no point did I feel rushed or hurried which, when considering we arrived unannounced and unexpected, is a testament to the professionalism of this hotel. Every member of staff we encountered were respectful, welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. I am therefore surprised to read the reviews here faulting the service. Of course the views are stunning, the location is incredible, the decor and interior are of the highest standard; it was however the relaxed, warm and professional welcome we received from the staff which led us to book this hotel as our wedding venue that very night. I can give no higher praise than this.
