Great place to stay.
What a lovely place to stay. Room was lovely and the photos on the web don’t do the palace justice it’s even prettier in the flesh. The view from the room was stunning and the staff went over and above. Breakfast was yummy. Highly recommended!

Friendly staff, good food, lovely clean room, nice outdoor seating area to enjoy the beautiful views. We never had a problem parking but space is limited. You need a car to drive to other locations or be extremely fit! The rooms are up a relatively steep staircase so enquire if you have mobility issues.
