A very large group of 24 ladies stayed for one night, we couldn't believe how friendly and welcoming every member of staff were to us, the breakfast was superb, clean, comfortable , warm and beautiful rooms. No problem too big, nothing was a bother to the staff, so accommodating, lovely atmosphere, we'll definitely be back.
