    Food is prepared by college students. Set menu with alternative main course. Food excellent but the wine is rather cheap. Lacking in atmosphere,as the room is very big and open. Service was acceptable but could do with a smile.

    i can't answer regarding the depth of the pool because we didn't use it but I'm sure If you ask the hotel they will answer. All bedrooms, as far as I know, have a balcony where you can smoke.
