Great staff, convenient and great views.
The entire stay was amazing. From the moment I arrived I was treated as a valued member, the conseiere service was incredible. The hotel is conveniently located at the southern end if town with a lot of great restaurants and pubs. The breakfast was fast and delicious. I used the spa services and was impressed with the treatment. Overall an excellent stay. Highly recommended.
