We had a fabulous and restful 6 day break at this hotel. The staff were professional and very friendly and helpful, especially on reception. The rooms are very comfortable and restful and the location is stunning. Breakfast was very good ,with a good choice, however I wouldn't recommend ordering from the al a carte as it takes an exceptionaly long time and is not always as ordered. Also the restaurant is clearly understaffed in the morning and the one staff member "who is lovely" struggles to serve all guests in a timely fashion. However this said it is a small blip in an otherwise perfect holiday and we will definately be back! I Can't wait.
