Stayed for 2 nights here as part of a hen party. Hotel was lovely, very welcoming staff and gorgeous décor. The best breakfast I have had in a long time. Lots of choices available and the weather was great so we got to sit outside. The bar staff were delightful and really made an effort to ensure our group had an enjoyable stay. The room, however, was small, dark and dingy with a nice view of the staircase on the outside. We were barely able to move with two people and two suitcases in. The room was VERY HOT which meant that we had an uncomfortable nights sleep. We were provided with a fan but it merely just moved the hot air about. We did have a small window but it wasn't sufficient. However, bed was very comfortable. If we stayed here again I would definitely choose another room - avoid room 7 if there is two of you.
However, the spa was very nice :)
