Lovely Rothay Garden
Beautiful hotel in lovely village. The hotel was quiet so the staff had time to be particularly attentive. The food was excellent and we enjoyed our meals in the gorgeous conservatory dining room.

Very nice hotel. Well appointed room with large bathroom. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good with great choice of options. I would say just a bit pricey for amenities and location but likely high demand currently.
