Relaxing, enjoyable, and comfortable, with top service.

Breakfast choices amazing and fulfilling. Room was clean and tidy and well appointed, but we prefer a firmer bed. Notified reception about non-function of air-con, and bedside lamp globe blown. Everything otherwise completely satisfactory. We shall return.

Disgusting food

Room service food was disgusting, the room was great and we decided to stay in and enjoy room. Which was a mistake as we have been sick for 2 days.

Always a pleasure to return

Staff and facilities are top class. Recent renovations have freshened the hotel up nicely. Only criticism is that the new bathroom taps don't have enough clearance to sink. I am also having issues receiving emailed tax invoices. I am not ... more
