Never been here before, but the downstairs restaurant was packed. So I assume many people agree. Well presented, great surroundings. Just one thing.... we were left alone.... for along time. Whilst I'm not the... More

My disabled wife and I had a 4 day break here in August. I am writing this because I get frustrated at the people who leave poor reviews. By all means give us your opinion but only after you have drawn the Management's attention to your issue. Then we can properly judge how good the hotel is regarding their customer... More
