We had a lovely Valentine's weekend at this hotel and enjoyed the executive lounge facilities. The afternoon High Tea is superb and is highly recommended. And you should not miss the evening cocktails. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. A most enjoyable stay.

There are many things to like about the hotel, the staff the rooms and facilities being the top three. However, there are a few things that reduce the enjoyment, the construction, which means the pool area is noisy all day. This is OK for business trips but not vacations and certainly until finished I would not return or recommend. We...
