Beautiful bar area and breakfast
We stayed here for two days after our wedding for a minimoon. The hotel is beautifully decorated downstairs and breakfast was great! The room was comfortable but very plain which was not what I expected. The shower head kept falling down so it was quite difficult to shower. It was also very warm in the room (there was a fan to help with this). Would definitely stay again for the bar/breakfast/staff downstairs.
