    The breakfast and service was very good . We ate at the hotel for dinner ,which again was excellent. A good menu choice which was well presented. All of the staff ,especially the reception staff were professional and were very helpful and approachable. Could not fault the service throughout the hotel ,nothing was too much trouble. Room was comfortable , as was the bed. Bathroom was spotless.

    The only fault was the carpet which run alongside the main corridors leading to the room. Given the amount of traffic they now need replacing or cleaning.
