Very nice stay
Beautiful hotel, lovely food, good location. Staff are really lovely but the service could be better. Not their fault think more training would be required for the service to match the interior design and quality products provided.

6/10 Good

When we arrived it was difficult to find someone ie no way to let anyone know you were there. When we arrived back no parking at the front ,we eventually found the rear parking after 3 attempts & then going in where we were given a map. Once at the rear nobody answered the bell so we had to go into the hotel where a barman was very helpful ie he opened the gate & on realising there was still no parking space he sought permission to remove a cone from the front where we then parked. If we had known the parking was so limited we would have booked somewhere with more parking. This spoiled our otherwise nice stay

Exceeded expectations
The hotel exceeded our expectations! We had a nice large room with a great view. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was updated and very clean. Breakfast was included and the food was outstanding. Free parking was an added bonus. If we are ever in the area again, we would return to this property.

8/10 Very good

One night business stay. Overall nice property - couple of areas for improvement: - Front rooms face a road which is noisy - no additional sound proofing in the windows. Ok for one night but not great for any longer. - Room was ok but a bit small - wardrobe close to the side of the bed for example. Again ok for a night but not ideal for much longer - Breakfast decent but could use improvement from a more interesting buffet with fresh fruit and decent juices instead of just using concentrate etc.
