Lovely hotel with excellent food, restaurant was chaotic, it took over two hours to get served a three course meal. First floor landing is noisy due to fans etc for swimming pool located on the flat roof, we asked to change rooms as the noise at night was unbearable. Rooms were a nice size but thick with dust, tea cups...

We stayed there for my wife's birthday last weekend and the staff were excellent. The food was really good and the chef had gone to the trouble of organising a menu to suit my wife's diet (She's vegan). It was a quiet evening in the hotel but everybody was very helpful and I'd recommend it for a couple of nights...

Went here a few weeks ago with my family and food and staff were both great, but we could overhear the shouting at the staff from a chef or a manager from the kitchen when we were in the bar. It was highly inappropriate and very unprofessional. something you do not want to hear when you are enjoying a meal...

attended a wedding and the attention to detail was wonderful. the food was exceptional, plentiful and freshly prepared. our servers were wonderful. Having worked in silver service at a wedding venue many years ago I totally understand and appreciate how hard it is to cater for 180+ people but they did an admiral job. Particular praise to the younger servers...
