The staff from the reception to the housekeeping were friendly and welcoming. The hotel...

The view is stunning. a beautiful, peaceful location. Excellent facilites should it rain! And if the weather is fine there is plenty to do, including an impressive art work nearby. The only issue was the limited vegetarian choice in the dinner menu.

I think from outside the hotel looks a bit tired and inside it is a bit dated however every where was clean and comfortable, and staff were very helpful and food was excellent. I was a bit surprised that wi if was not free in the bedrooms.

Location is stunning and that is why we return to this hotel. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. Prices are extortionate. £8 for a glass of wine is ridiculous. Bring your own! Be careful of Db&b deals. For us the bar menu is far better than restaurant menu. Food is excellent with huge portions and as such we did not...

In all a nice stay would come back to stay again if in the area would like to have had more local people Serving in the hotel and service could do to be slicker. Swimming pool facilities were good but pool could have done to have been a little warmer!,,
