    A lovely hotel which made us feel like we where on holiday. The greatly designed bar area has such a warm feel as well as the kind and helpful staff. The pool was amazing to relax and enjoy. Great location for the hotel with everything we needed within a short walk. Perfect stay. Thank you!

    Underwhelmed

    Booked a superior room but the room we received was small by comparison to the standard rooms. We needed to eat in our room and only had I chair at the desk no seating area as described in the room description. I understand an old hotel will have differences in rooms but they shouldn’t sell it as superior - Room 206 avoid it !
