    We attending a friend's wedding at the hotel. We were very impressed. The wedding was beautiful. Very professional staff. The food was amazing including the breakfast. The bedrooms were surprisingly nice and spotlessly clean. Every aspect of our visit exceeded expectation.

    Lovely venue for a wedding. Great staff. Only issue was not being able to get ready anywhere before hand for the wedding as it was before check in time. Would have been nice if they had offered somewhere.

    Very nice hotel Only small point was the unruly kids in the lounge bar felt that staff could have asked the parents to have more control over the children The outside looks like Altraz however the inside is very nice
