Fantastic place to get away for a treat!
We booked a dinner, bed and breakfast package with friends and it was simply gorgeous. Smiling, helpful staff greeted us. We had a stunning meal, all presented beautifully. The bar has a lovely cosy feel to it and the restaurant had plenty of atmosphere. The room itself was lovely, warm, stylish and lot more space than you get in most hotel rooms these days. Plug for charger by the bed, nice toiletries and robes, a sofa, desk and well-stocked minibar! Breakfast was delicious too. I left feeling full, relaxed and ready to return again soon.
