Upon arrival you are welcomed with a beautiful glass of either chilled orange juice or a sparkling wine (I opted...

After a slight hiccup over Gluten Free Meals this Hotel was the best I have stayed in for Gluten Free Meals. Also the Staff were the most helpful and most friendly my wife have seen for a very long time. Hoping to return to this hotel in 2018.
