Exceptional 10.0
Amazing hotel. Housekeeping was good but not perfect. Some simple things could be done better, the bed wasn’t made one day, toiletries and coffee weren’t replaced. On the whole excellent hotel, excellent breakfast, excellent food staff.

Exceptional 10.0
We had a very enjoyable stay and the staff could not be any more welcoming and helpful. It would be helpful to have something like a pillow menu as I struggled to get a pillow that I found comfortable and was not feather due to allergies. This however did not ruin my stay and I would definitely stay again.

Good 6.0
Bit disappointing
Beautiful hotel, staff were excellent. On the downside - we were told we were being given a quite room when in fact if was opposite the main lift so we could everyone coming and going also next door to a church, Sunday morning bells were extremely load. Told there was a 30 minute wait for breakfast on Sunday morning - never had this at any hotel we've stayed at and guests were not happy - staff didn't even offer drinks whilst guests waited. Bathroom ceiling had paint peeling in the shower - might be worth relocating the extractor so that it's more effective. Overall an average stay - expected more considering the price per night.
