We have always enjoyed having a meal at this hotel, Always a lot of choice, and always very well cooked, and who could not enjoy a meal with such a fantastic view, The staff are so friendly and eager to please. we have also stayed overnight a few times, and have always thought the bedrooms need updating and a modernizing....
