Food and Staff 100% - mattress not so much..
The staff were excellent as was the food. I had an evening meal and also breakfast the next day and neither could be faulted. The downside was the bed.. it was hard and lumpy and did not resemble a mattress in any way, which resulted in me having the worst nights sleep in a long time. The breakfast and staff did cheer me up the next morning however. I would recommend this hotel, but check the mattress first.
