Attended a business programme hosted at the venue. The staff are warm and welcoming and there is a wide range of refreshments to cater to all needs. We were hosted in the Library for a week, the venue, view, refreshments and access to Wi-Fi were really good. The only challenge lies in the speed with which assistance is given with...

We stayed there for 1 night only and it just wasn't enough. The food was delicious and the staff were so friendly and helpful. We had a lovely room in the lovely hotel. Dinner was good and the breakfast was excellent.
