          Very rarely do I rate a hotel 5 stars but this place deserves it. Not only are the views magnificent but the rooms and service are excellent as well. Hopefully the photos I have attached do the place justice. A must stay!

          Sorry, no, there is only one star bed that can be rolled out. (Please make sure you are booked into a regular cottage and not the family cottage, which has two rooms but no star bed)
