I stayed at this hotel with my 4 sisters as a birthday treat for 2 of them. I booked a very cheap deal and wasn't expecting the level of service or the quality of the rooms and the food to be as good. I was more than pleasantly surprised!!
We ate in the restaurant as part of our deal and were allowed to choose either a main/desert/tea or coffee or a starter/main/tea or coffee from the al la carte menu which turned out to be superb. The lady at reception was happy to give us advise on where best to go 'down town' after our meal and the friendly night porter was more than happy to serve us a late drink when we returned much later.
It was pouring rain when we were leaving and a lovely gentleman called Chris ran back and forth with us to our cars holding an umbrella to keep us dry. A total gent!
My only complaint is that the food service was slow. They were extremely busy however and the staff were very apologetic.
Overall the experience was fantastic and we all agreed we would definitely go back.
