Everything about the standard of this hotel and service received during our two night stay for a family wedding was excellent. We stayed here as a family of four (two young children) and stayed in a spacious family room with fantastic views. The hotel staff were the friendliest I have ever met who could not do enough for us.

Usually, a hotel and its service is never so great that a review is even possible. It was this past June that I attended a surprise birthday for my cousin in the main dining area. With a table of 12, we understood if a perfect experience was not possible- especially with two small children. But the staff perfectly, and I...

I recently attended a wedding here on the 24th of July 2015. I don't usually take the time to write hotel reviews but after my experience I felt I needed too. I'm a coeliac and although weddings are usually joyous occasions I usually find myself a little anxious when it comes to sitting down to have the meal. More times...

Great spa and good value here. Drinks in the rooftop bar were great, and even blankets/ heaters if you were cold. Minor point, but bar snacks only from a vending machine??? Would still go back here and the views are pretty too. Warm and friendly service from all staff.

This is a great hotel. The rooms are huge, extremely comfortable and soft beds with a decent-sized tv and a good wifi signal in the room. The check-in staff are friendly and attentive, always smiling and are very good-looking imo (nice bonus). I didn't eat here so can't comment on the food, but on the night of my stay the...
