Despite the Christmas lockdown rules I had enjoyable stay between 24/12 to 26/12. All the staff I met were extremely friendly and helpful. I felt safe as the hotel had a strict COVID 19 cleaning regime as well as plenty of hand sanitizer stations throughout out the hotel. Although the food offerings were limited I had enjoyable evening meal in my room and the continental breakfasts delivered to the room were different and nice. Overall a very pleasant stay in difficult times.

Outstandingly friendly and helpful staff made our stay as easy and comfortable as was possible in tier 3 lockdown. Room service was limited but fresh and satisfactory- and exceptionally prompt. And our room was wonderfully quiet, helped by there being almost no one else staying. The only criticism is that our suite was run down and I’m need of refurbishment. But it was still very comfortable, and clean.

An excellent facility with a fantastic staff. Due to the country lockdown, we had to change the wedding date, and the staff pulled it off with 36 hours notice. They set the room up for the wedding and reception, changed our room requests from Saturday to the previous Tuesday.

We booked this hotel last minute after a disaster at a nearby hotel (by last minute I mean booked at 2pm for that day). It was my birthday and we were already booked for a spa day at the Radisson spa and it was exceptional - relaxing, clean & friendly staff. We then had afternoon tea in the restaurant which was exceptional too. I am vegetarian and it was so nice to see that the chef put so much effort into the vegetarian option with 4 different sandwiches (beetroot, roasted veg, cheese and chutney and an egg one). This made such a difference to my day as I usually expect just standard sandwiches but these where so lovely and the scones where warm still!!! When we checked in around 5pm the receptionist upgraded us which was so lovely of her ( I think her name was Chloe?) The staff in the bar where very attentive & kind. The spa staff where brilliant and helped my partner find his bank card after he left it in the dressing gown pocket... All in all - thank you to all the staff the staff completely made my birthday and I can not wait to return. Thank you.
