The spa the staff very good the breakfast excellent
The cleaness of the hotel
Excellent service from the moment we arrived. The room was neat and clean and good sized. Plenty of hot water for the shower. The restaurant had great food and great service both at breakfast and dinner.
Was a nice hotel but certainly not worth the prices they charge
The breakfast and service was very good . We ate at the hotel for dinner ,which again was excellent. A good menu choice which was well presented. All of the staff ,especially the reception staff were professional and were very helpful and approachable. Could not fault the service throughout the hotel ,nothing was too much trouble. Room was comfortable , as was the bed. Bathroom was spotless.
The only fault was the carpet which run alongside the main corridors leading to the room. Given the amount of traffic they now need replacing or cleaning.
Dinner was cold, Breakfast was cold, not enough experienced staff on
