The staff were courteous and friendly from the moment we arrived. We started with a drink in the very well stocked bar before heading to the conservatory for lunch. We enjoyed beautiful views over the...

We'd had lunch here before, but this is the first time that we've stayed. And it definitely won't be the last... Lovely staff, very good service and excellent breakfasts. The buffet is very good, with loads of fresh fruit and fresh juices - and the cooked breakfasts are superb. I had Eggs Benedict both mornings and it was absolutely delicious....

Just popped in for a late lunch and to kill time before the mainland ferry. What a wonderful old building, inside and out. Full of character and history. I only had a sandwich and a pot of Ear Gray. A lovely ham and honey mustard mayonnaise, with which they served a little tossed salad and side nibbles. Delightful. Very good...
