Fabulous 8.8 From 65 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Highly recommended
Fabulous overnight stay in the Penthouse. It is just a pity they no longer serve evening meals but there are plenty of choices locally. Penthouse is beautiful but mind your head even with the padding on the ceiling beams! This is a lovely individual hotel which I would have no hesitation in recommending or returning to.
