The room was clean and comfortable. The dinner delicious and the staff are friendly but I felt sorry for the young lady who seemed to have to be everything to everybody.

Need i say more. Probably one of the most awful places I have ever stayed. Their rooms were like ice, the heaters supplied had not got adapters that enabled themtk be plugged inane the rooms had not been aired after a fire. Even in the main hotel lounge the decor was tired and there was no ounce of the graciousness one expected from the website

Great place to stay and not just for 1 night either.  Very comfortable room, friendly staff, relaxing pool and garden.  Best of all the dining experience.  Stunning setting and food to match.  Highly recommended.

We stayed for one night only (business) in a spacious outside room using their bed, breakfast and dinner special. The portions are huge - we desperately wanted dessert but it was impossible. Very friendly staff too.
