Have just spent another fabulous week at this great hotel. I have always found the staff friendly and efficient. I have read awful reports of bad service, awful rooms,and terrible dining facilities. At no time have iI experienced this. The dining room is busy and the self service can be a little chaotic but it is only the customers causing the chaos. Surely people can look at the choices and then go and get want they want without wandering around . There is always plenty of choice. The kitchen and dining room staff work extremely hard to ensure that tables are cleared and we are topped up with wine and water.
I feel that the hotel is of a very high standard for a 3star.
My visits are always early or late in the season but I have enjoyed them all and will be returning.
