A typical good class RICA hotel- modern facilities, nicely warmed, comfortable rooms, nice dining room and pleasant staff. A bit chaotic at 1am checking in when the late plane arrived, but once settled in it was a welcome rest.
Breakfast is generous self serve style in a lovely dining room. On our visit the kitchen staff seemed somewhat stretched in trying to keep up the supplies to breakfast ... but on holidays ..it doesn't matter.
The hotel has several relaxation rooms, libraries, bar etc ..all very elegant and of the style of grand days gone by.
Some TripAdvisor contributors have commented that the hotel is 1km uphill from the town, which is true, but we find it a pleasant stroll after dinner and nice to be in a quiet spot.
