Our 2nd visit was just as good as our first.

The hotel is perfect. Extremely clean and comfortable.

The staff our fantastic and cater for your every need. As well as being exceptionally friendly.

Our last visit was during the COVID pandemic, and whilst every precaution was taken for ours and others safety it didn’t feel like our visit was any different from our previous one.

In fact, due to this I’d say it made the dining experience better. With tables being slightly further apart and set up in way that offered a more intimate evening. The food as before was 5*.

Will definitely visit again.
