Room was lovely and clean with a balcony ( handy for smokers) housekeeper does a lovely job. Breakfast was best I ever had in a hotel. Staff amazing spa was lovely xx

Stayed here for couple nights as seeing a show at the Pavillion great location. Would return. Breakfast is varied plenty of choice. Spa facilities are great. Very clean and staff very helpful. Great location down side is the walk up the hill after a few drinks. Afternoon tea is a must.

Spent one night in the hotel with my two daughters and their partners to celebrate my birthday. Our rooms were clean and comfortable (although one was on the small side). The food in the restaurant was lovely and all the staff were friendly and helpful. The spa facilities were excellent. We would definitely visit again.

It was a lovely, relaxing stay in a very clean and cared for hotel. The bar staff were funny and friendly. The spa was relaxing and peaceful, thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back in the future.
