It's rare to find somewhere that feels so warm and homely yet elegant and classy. The service was absolutely brilliant and the staff made us feel like part of the family. Nothing was to much trouble. The food was excellent both in the evening and breakfast.

This place is amazing. Not only the building and the interior design, but the people who work here are polite and very professional. We attended a family wedding and could not have chosen a better place. I can't say enough about the staff here, from the bar staff, receptionists to the Master of Ceremonies. A truly special experience.
