Myself and my husband had the most amazing break away. We started off with some spa treatments, they were fab. The pool area is lovely. Nice and relaxing. Our room was stunning, overlooking gorgeous gardens. Our bed is the nicest bed ive ever slept in. The bath was a real treat. We had dinner and breakfast in the hotel and both were lovely. Staff are so friendly. We felt very safe in the hotel. Walking distance to everything, such a ideal location. Will definitely be returning. Top class!!

On reaching steps of Hotel the concierge was down to us, took our bags and we were made most welcome. We were assigned an upgrade to a junior suite which was exceptional, along with a personal note and chocolates on table. We were extremely comfortable and treated to tea/coffee/scones in reception area. Dinner was included and food was amazing. Breakfast was completely COVID 19 compliant and our waiter Shubert was the. Calmest, kind waiter one could wish for. He was attentive, very mannerly, and obliging. What more could you ask for

The hotel is beautiful, really impressive. The room is normal, but when we entered it smelled humid. The water from the sink sprays your body and splashes all over the floor, probably because the faucet is not the right one for the type of sink. The worst part is the horrible sunken mattress.

Had a one night stay and this hotel is just fabulous. The rooms are large and well appointed, the bed is so comfortable. The staff are super friendly and very efficient. The food is lovely and the hotel is a stones throw from shops and pubs if you want to stroll into town. However we just enjoyed the hotel and its hospitality. Its all very clean and Covid orientated. There is nothing here we can fault and we will be going back.
