Hadn't read reviews, so we didn't have any negativity on this hotel. On arrival we were amazed at the location, stunning views and lovely gardens. Quiet location so no traffic noise, a big plus as far as I am concerned. The moment we walked in the door, we were warmly welcomed by Angela and Phil. They have recently taken over the hotel and are busy renovating, to many this would be a daunting task, but here you have a couple with so much positive energy, they will not fail. They have some of the best staff that I have met in a hotel - nothing is too much trouble and they all so obviously enjoy working there. The food was outstanding and priced well, the portions will never leave you hungry. Out room was a good size and most importantly clean, nice fluffy towels and plenty of tea and coffee. A T.V. With free view, complimentary shampoo and soap etc and lots of hot water. Now that we have visited we have lots of positive thoughts about this hotel and what it has to offer. I cannot fault this hotel, we are looking forward to returning and exploring the area further.
