My wife and I had an overnight stay at this lovely hotel and spar.
The welcome was good and inviting, even though we were an hour early.
Our room was ready and after a short tour of the facilities we were taken to the room, which was spotlessly clean, a very good size, the bed was excellent, (as well as enormous) and there was a very nice bathroom.
The windows opened fully, so that there was a good flow of air, and perhaps the only downside was that it overlooked the kitchen entrance, meaning that there were plenty of early morning comings and goings
The swimming pool was a modest size, but very pleasant. Changing facilities are limited, and a slight complaint was that there were no towels for us when we got out. After a telephone call to reception and requests to a couple of staff we were finally able to change.
Afternoon tea was good and nicely served.
We ordered the evening meal over a pre dinner drink in the bar, and I have to say that the food was exquisite and the restaurant service first class.
Many of the guests were foreign, and all appeared very happy with the hotel.
Breakfast was excellent and served by a very happy and pleasant staff once more.
All in all an excellent hotel for a short break, it is certainly not the cheapest, but then you expect to pay for quality.
