We stayed for 4 nights in November 2016, on arrival the hotel did not look very impressive, but we then realised that it was going through some major renovations, the room we were given was very nice (over 2 different floors), and clean. The bar/restaurant area is very nice, especially the open fire. The food was very good in the...

Just come back from a stay here and whilst the staff were friendly, it was clean and in a nice area no one mentioned the ongoing renovations that woke us at 8 in the morning with the drilling and banging. We had a standard twin room which was nice but the bathroom whilst clean had a gap in the door...

I have rated this hotel average which it is not, but some things about it are very good and some really not very good at all. The hotel is a renovation of interesting historic buildings - an old orphanage and chapel, and has retained some original features. It is still being renovated and extended so some areas such as reception...

Easter Dinner was an absolute winner! The food combinations and cocktail selection were new and refreshing. Staff were smiley and helpful, even during such a busy period. With the innovative and exciting new developments, this hotel can only get better. Can't wait to see the veg garden right next to the open kitchen and bar. I will be back! :)

Simply put, this hotel is just incredible. My partner and I booked this months ago for our first ever holiday abroad, I was nervous and wasn't sure what to expect when I saw the reviews. However the excellent front office staff like Myrta, Marit, Rose and Brandi emailed us to reassure us. Not only this, they arranged a larger room...

I had a great Easter lunch at the restaurant. It was the first time I visited the hotel and I was very impressed. The lamb was fantastic as was the deserts. The staff made us feel very welcome and suggested some nice cocktails! 🤗
