Very Good 8.0
Family wedding
Stayed here for a family wedding. Good sized room well appointed. Bathroom temperature was rather excessive & not controllable. A complaint made about most hotels these days that room temperatures are too hot and not user friendly so nothing unusal in that. Staff could not have been more helpful and attentive during the whole day, ceremony, reception and evening. Take my hat off to them superb.
