Very friendly ans helpful staff, great location, amazing breakfast and breakfast services.
Friendly, helpful staff, lovely atmosphere, modern, stylish interior, great food, comfy rooms and beds. Great views. Had a superb fillet of hake in The Artisan restaurant one evening. Beautifully cooked and presented. Attentive service. Couldn't fault it.
A really, really minor point: mushrooms and tomatoes at breakfast were tasteless and looked unappetizing. Otherwise, the food was excellent.
The breakfast, bar food and Sunday Carvery were outstanding. Friendly, cheerful staff.
