Michael and his team were very welcoming. Food was top notch. The hotel is going through major refurbishment but it did not effect our stay there. If booking in the next 6-8 weeks ask to stay in one if the refurbished rooms. Jeff and Maria.

Horrible rooms not worth the money do yourself a favour and stay somewhere else. The owner has a real attitude when you complain and basically told us to go elsewhere knowing that it was a busy weekend and everywhere else was booked.
