    Faultless

    All the little touches made this a very special stay. From the hot towel and Prosecco upon arrival to the personal trainer at the gym and the almonds in the spa. But all the big touches were also spot on. Clean, comfortable room, great breakfast, Jane made absolutely delicious eggs royal. Can’t recommend this hotel enough!

    Great

    Amazing. the only downside is that they updated the furniture at the reception from the ones that were there last year but did nothing to the rooms. i wish they can update the carpets in the rooms as they have started to deteriorate. the other disappointing thing is that everyones going green but they are brining back plastic bottles instead of their usual branded glass bottles.

    Poor service

    Restaurant and bar staff disinterested in providing services - and focused on playing with their phones and chatting to each other.
