I stayed here in May, on arrival into our room it was quiet cold, the windows were open and it was not warm outside. The double bed was very small, with two people we did not have much space. The room was very clean and spacious, the staff were friendly and informative.

Recently we had a family wedding at Fernhill. Amazing day from beginning to end. Everything about the day was seamless. The staff are above and beyond. The food was 5 star and more akin to a fine dining restaurant. The location speaks for itself. Really impressed.
