‘A wonderful weekend. We recently stayed here with a group of friends and we all thought the hotel was excellent… close to the airport and is set in beautiful grounds. The executive room we had was large and very comfortable with a huge bathroom, it even had a TV in the bath! The meal we ate in the restaurant was delicious and the service we received was excellent. We used the spa and the pool and can definitely recommend a facial. We also had afternoon tea at the spa and thoroughly enjoyed that too. This is a lovely hotel with excellent facilities and very attentive staff who made our weekend a memorable one.’
