We first stayed here 10 years ago and loved the location so decided to go back.
Hotel is fine, very open and a bit cold feeling due to the massive atrium. The bedroom was fine and functional but was disappointed in the bathroom, it was very much in need of a makeover. Outdated and tired looking.
The breakfast was acceptable if not outstanding, you could order special requests from the chef but this was not obvious! Staff were very courteous and helpful. I found the cooked food not hot enough.
The position is brilliant and we would stay here again. It is good value and would only go up in price if the changes were made. The pool on the roof has amazing views.
As it was a cool few nights we were happy to sit near the open fire in the bar after we had been out to eat!
