Our stay between Christmas and the new year was very enjoyable. We found all areas of the hotel, spa, restaurant and room to be spotlessly clean. Our room wasn't quite as big as expected but was acceptable, the extremely comfortable bed and whirlpool bath more than made up for it. The restaurant is spacious, bright and airy. The breakfast was excellent with lots of choices of fruit, cereal and pastries. You are then served with your choice of cooked items. We ate in the evening and the food was ok but not fantastic (don't forget to order extras) my wife had pan fried chicken supreme and it arrived with just new potatoes, it does state on the menu to order side dishes, just make sure you remember to do so. The spa is excellent and the outdoor hot tub is a great novelty being outside in the water when it is cold is strangely enjoyable. The public/bar area is really nice it has lots of very comfortable seating, one small downside is that it seems to lack a bit of atmosphere some tasteful background music would have been good. The location of the hotel is perfect for all the village amenities. The parking is a little tight but not impossible. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. All in all a lovely stay Thank you.
