We stayed a night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We enjoyed a lovely meal with great service. I could not recommend the hotel enough. Our room was fabulous and very comfortable. I felt they went above and beyond to ensure we had a lovely stay.

Food was excellent. Had the chowder and it was wonderful with the brown bread. Breakfast was buffet style. The mushrooms and tomatoes were excellent as well as the smoked salmon.
