Had a fantastic stay here yesterday. From the moment we arrived the front of house staff couldn't be more helpful. The thermal suite was divine and had a fabulous back neck and shoulder massage afterwards. We had a very tasty 4 course meal followed by a cocktail demo by the very friendly and endearing Cal. Overall the staff in this hotel were exceptional and could not do enough to make our stay a pleasurable one.. will definitely return again

This hotel is just great. The food is very good and the staff are their best asset. We stayed there 3 nights and could not fault one thing. The staff were very attentive and helpful. Our room was very roomy and bright. We even got water in the room every day this is a small thing but means a lot.
