Beautiful hotel

Lovely comfortable room, beautiful grounds and scenery and relaxing pool area which was open until 10pm.

All staff were friendly and helpful. Ordered room service which came in good time and was of good quality. The member of staff who brought it to us did not know how to take payment and had to go and ask however she was new and this was resolved without a fuss. Car park was quite noisy during the night due to people leaving a function in the sports bar. Overall thouroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldd definitely return. We were not made aware that there would be a pre-authorisation (deposit) required. This took a long time to be returned (upto 10 days) which was an inconvenience.

It's hard to fault anything during our stay really.

We thoroughly enjoyed it. Hotel in beautiful location, rooms lovely and clean. Breakfast and evening meals were to an excellent standard.
