Open gas fire in the hotel Bar was great, and so was the jacuzzi - very strong jets are great for a sore back after a long drive!

Beautiful accommodation a few things could do with a refresh. The only negative would be the in room dining... poor choices with only 4 things on the main menu and all of them contained meat. For a 5 star hotel you may need to update your menu.
