This hotel is very clean we were made to feel very welcome and service was excellent. Room was small and en-suite dated but really clean. Water pressure in bathroom was very low and took along time to draw a bath. Outlook was not great. Food was really good however. Good hotel but the location was not ideal for us.

I stayed in this beautiful hotel again and I certainly wasn't disappointed with my choice of where to stay. The food was excellent as it was on previous visits. Everything was to the same high standards and to top it off the weather was good too.

We choose this hotel following the other rave reviews on Trip Advisor and were delighted with our choice. Right from the moment we walked in we were made to feel welcome, and my husband was greeted with a 'happy birthday' which I'd made a mention of in the booking form. We choose the Patricia room which was very spacious with...
