The bar on the 4th floor has...

This was our second day at the hotel and we enjoyed this just as much if not more than the last. From the valet parking to the prosecco at check in the staff can't do enough for you. The room is impeccable and the spa is truly five star. Amazing grounds and one of the best breakfasts you can imagine!

A fantastic hotel with a setting second to none. The staff could not do enough to help and were extremely friendly. Whilst not cheap, you certainly get what you pay for and everything about the hotel is superb.
