Stay was excellent. Room spacious, very clean and lovely view over garden. Breakfast was superb and staff very pleasant and friendly. Our swedish friends travelling with us were equally impressed.. Only drawback for us was no bar to have a nightcap in.

Couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. From arriving to leaving felt welcome. If I could give a gold star I would. The staff were cheerful and you could tell that a lot of the guests had been there before. That in itself shows how great this place was! It never seemed a burden asking them for help, thank you all!!

The team here are wonderful people and do what they can for you. They really give top level service. They just need help from the company that owns the hotel to give it much needed renovations. I will return one day I hope :)
