Lovely hotel, lovely situation, great views, lousy food. I really can't understand why such places pay so little attention to food. The potential of the hotel is unlimited given its situation but failing miserably with its cuisine. Good service. The pan fried chicken was bland...More

We went for breakfast. The staff were very friendly, helpful and polite. The food was amazing I have the banana and bacon pancakes. One of the best breakfasts I've had in a while. My 5 friends all had different choices and no one had a...More

Booked a table for dinner at the restaurant for three people as they had good disabled access and had a gluten free menu... it all went down hill from here! We ordered starters, I chose the spicy chimichurri chicken wings. After 15 minutes or so...More

The menu has a nice selection of breakfast items, so looking forward to a 'full English' we turned up at 9.30 a.m to be told that they were not doing it today as they had run out of food. They could offer us toast -...More
