Stayed overnight for a two-day work-related team-building event. The hotel & facilities were excellent. The menu was varied & of very high quality. Particular attention was given to our vegan/vegetarian team members, who also were given an excellent choice on an alternative menu. The rooms were very clean & presentable.
