“Birthday night away”


'Let’s start by saying the views from the hotel are amazing. Drive past the hotel and follow the road up the hill turn left and park near the golf course, stunning.

The hotel is very comfortable and the rooms are a reasonable size. The staff are friendly and more than happy to help.

Food is OK but nothing special. My partner was delighted by the vegan pudding option and this made her very very happy. She is allergic to diary products.

The shame of the food is it was so close to being amazing, it just to me felt like it was being cooked by someone who didn’t care as much as they should.

Would 100% stay again. '
