We recently stayed here for a friends birthday. They had hired the hotel exclusively and it was truly fabulous. The rooms were gorgeous, the beds comfy and the shower to die for. The roof terrace is a fantastic place to have a drink and we ate in the upstairs area on the roof. All 60 guests were served together and...

Had a lovely meal in comfy seated lounge area. Friendly staff. Followed by a good nights sleep in clean comfy bed, followed by English breakfast in the morning . Ideal for people who are going to fly out next day so can start holiday refreshed or to stay on return from holiday before heading back home

We were lucky enough to be invited by two very generous friends to their daughter's evening wedding celebration, and to spend the night there. First impressions "WOW" - wonderful décor, sumptuous carpets etc. At second view - unfortunately style over substance in certain areas. The bathroom and w.c. were up a tricky staircase with no handrails. Once there - visiting...

Lovely hotel and a very good afternoon tea. The service was also efficient but friendly. Not the cheapest but we visited Cloud 23 afterwards for a cocktail and their afternoon tea looked average in comparison
