Great Location and nice room, Staff are fantastic. The spa was disappointing as it lacked jets in the right places and the tv channel range was below average but we didn't stay there to watch tv so didn't really care to much about that

We loved the pool, spa and the sauna, as well as the quality breakfast. The kitchenette in our studio room was perfect for a family with young children. My inquiries prior to arrival were quickly and comprehensively answered by Nicki Neil. The staff was extremely friendly and positive - every single encounter was beautiful. Special kudos! It must be a good place to work in for the staff to be so sincerely upbeat. Some suggestions: The scent used at the lobby and basement is very odd and distractingly strong (unpleasant). I’d recommend removing or updating the perfume. The brown synthetic material used for curtains and restaurant table cloths could possibly also do with an update, without losing the period feel of the hotel. We had a great experience, thank you again!
