We went here for our honeymoon and had a great time. The hotel is very clean and the staff can't do enough for you. When we first arrived we were checked in very quickly and the concierge helped us to our room (Zibi you were very polite and welcoming thank you for all your help!) Even though a mistake was made where we weren't given the room we were expecting, we were upgraded to the executive suite for no extra cost and were made to feel important and like we weren't putting them out by bringing this up. The continental breakfast was more than enough to fill you up ready for a day of adventures, there was a lot of lovely things to choose from.
On the first night we stayed we had a meal in the vinand restaurant which was very romantic the only downfall was that there just wasn't enough in terms of food, a pre starter was sent courtacy of the chef which was lovely but the main course was quite small for what you pay, the empasis is definitely on quality rather than quantity!
Overall our stay was wonderful (made even better by the spa, which had everything you could need and was very clean) We felt the hotel is a little more pricey than other places but for a special occassion would go back, thank you for making our honeymoon.
