I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough, I attended a wedding and the staff were very friendly while professional. Facilities, venue, location and amenities were excellent. Would love to return for a second visit and spend more time there. I am not surprised it has received many awards and accolades and I have no doubt will continue to do so.

My husband and myself spend two nights in this fantastic hotel. From start to finish every thing and everyone was top class. The bedrooms are so luxurious and I have to say the cabaret was very enjoyable and would suit any age group. Will diffently be returning. Thank you to all the staff it was a wonderful birthday treat.
