      Comfortable

      Very nice and comfortable as you would expect of a hotel in this category. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Only disappointment was the lack of availability of the free car drop off that they advertise. We were not able to avail of this service three out of the three times we asked.

      Thumbs up!

      Very comfortable hotel with lovely and friendly staff. We had a great stay. Only thing that I wish for was the availability of another driver for the car service they provide. Three out of the three times we requested a lift through this service it was not available to us because the one driver was busy on another trip. They had a second car was there, though- they just didn’t have anyone else who could drive it which was a pity.
