What a nice place to stay. The people running the hotel were very friendly, from the cleaners to the management. Everybody had a smile and pleasantly passed the time of day, without being condescending.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Asked for a room with a view, away from function rooms and recieved exactly what I wanted. Being the summer there is chilly having heat in our room was a definite bonus. And for those with arthritis challenges, they have a lift.

We had a very pleasant and relaxing night in the Dolmen. The room was beautiful and very spacious. We were late checking in but there was no problem getting bar food. It was lovely. The staff are very helpful and pleasant. The bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and a nice menu. So overall I recommend this hotel highly!
