Positive Reviews

Top class accommodations

Reviews suggest it's common for visiting guests to experience a 'wow' moment when they first enter their room. The accommodations are, according to travellers, very impressive: well-appointed, nicely decorated, and very spacious indeed. The marble bathrooms are considered a highlight, as are the views.

Very professional staff

Travellers agree that the service provided here is consistently good. Reviews observe that staff members working across all departments are, on the whole, very adept in their roles, and suitably accommodating when attending to guests' needs.

Restaurant is just the job

Most guests lavish praise on the food and ambience served up in the hotel's in-house restaurant. Diners say the views via the floor-to-ceiling windows are every bit as sumptuous as the expertly crafted meals.

Negative Reviews

Hotel is a little isolated

Whilst the hotel's peaceful and somewhat secluded setting is seen as a plus by many travellers, some are disappointed to discover there's actually nothing else to see or do within walking distance.

Carpets need replacing

Some visitors are unimpressed with the carpets used in the hotel. They are, guests say, rather dated and worn.

Spa baths need more maintenance

Though guests are generally pretty pleased to have spa baths in their rooms, numerous reviewers highlight issues with them. The most commonly reported complaint is that the jets do not work properly.
