Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Lovely to get away ‘ only complaints were due to restrictions rather than issues with the hotel - seemed weird that we could drink wine gifted but the hotel in our bedroom but not in the bar! Also towels not being changed became an issue by day 3 as we had wet towels from pool and showers piling up!

A very relaxed stay in these unusual times. All safety regs adhered to without fuss. Clean towels etc left outside the room so no one entered it during our stay. The staff were friendly and helpful.
