    4/5 Good

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    Traditional hotel.

    A traditional upmarket hotel. Quite old fashioned in the decor and feels rather grand of the last. Food is expensive but a pleasant enough hotel. Beautiful location not a lot around. Wouldn’t recommend for children.
