10/10 Exceptional

Great service, really impressive staff in every aspect of the hotel.

6/10 Good

Lovely surroundings but overpriced
The hotel itself is lovely and the surroundings are beautiful but it is very overpriced. The aircon in the room didn’t work, the wardrobe door was off it’s runners and the pillows were flat and ultimately useless. It lacked the small touches that you expect paying the price they charge and that you expect from a 4 star hotel. The scampi I ordered as an evening meal was over cooked and had to be sent back, I received another one pretty much the same. The meals are very expensive and so should be perfect. Overall it was a little disappointing sadly.

8/10 Very good

Good position, but has a lack of attention to detail. The wall heater did not work but they brought an oil fired one which was fine. The central light fitting had exposed cables and looked untidy. The shower handset was loose. Very limited amount of storage only room for 6 hangars in total.

4/10 Fair

Choose something better
Management not in place. They just see you as milk cows. Avoid this place. Far too expensive for what it is. We didn't have a nice time here. Simple things they cannot organise. Worst is to say things are gluten free while they clearly were not. Staff running around like headless chickens or just gossiping with each other instead of doing basics right. Cannot trust lift. Swimming pool out of order as water cloudy (read dirty) takes days to sort it For the amount of money a no go place.
