Visited this lovely hotel, and had a very memorable meal in the restaurant. We chose from the a la carte menu, some of the best cooked food I have eaten in a long time. All local food, lovingly prepared in the huge kitchen, served by...More

Great meal, great service, highly recommended! Somehow they manage to blend relaxed feeling along with high class service and food. A truly class act and well worth visiting, you will not be disappointed.

We had the gourmet menu with the wine flight (good value). The food was well presented and interesting the lamb and scallops courses both fantastic. Sommelier great, service good overall. Beautiful views, lovely dining room, slightly staid atmosphere on the night we dined there.

This is definitely not the place to come for afternoon tea. We were treated to perfunctory service in a soulless room minus curtains. They sat us at what appeared to be a metal garden table with a cloth thrown over it. We were promised a...More
