Great staff and property was well located, but while room was pretty, it did feel a little airless, and I was happier sitting at the pool than in the room.

Simply amazing

So many thoughtful little touches really helped make our stay in this friendly, elegant hotel perfect. An iPad in our room for our use while we were there, and a mobile phone to take around the city in our travels, free cake, chocolates, tea and coffee in the shared lounge area, a large private patio with deckchairs adjacent to our very comfortable room, and even personalised luggage tags as an arrival gift. The shower was hot and strong, the breakfasts fantastic, and the advice on what to see and where to eat was excellent. Thank you!
