Silken Thomas is a fabulous place to stay. Our room was gorgeous, everything we needed. The food in the restaurant is A1, the ribs are just yum, lovely and tender. Had breakfast on the roof restaurant and it was lovely. I have to say all the staff we dealt with were just lovely. Exceptional team. Would highly recommend 👌
