Can’t fault the place! Amazing building, very friendly staff and outstanding service. If you want to be treated like royalty this is the place to be! Food at both restaurants where outstanding especially the great western where the food is as good as any Michelin star restaurant. Pool and spa was great and recommend to any men to try the spa! Had a go at the clay shooting range and what a experience! Great instructor to. Thank you for a wonderful 3 nights and can’t wait to return.

Everything from staff, service, amenities, food, activities was perfect. The only thing that I didn't like was the in-room dining food.

  • Disliked: Staff & service

Staff were excellent, we were incredibly suprised by the lack of quality on the vegan menu unfortunately. We understand there's limitations but soppy, overcooked dishes in the evening, and am honestly terrible breakfast. I travel the world for work and have never encountered food worth actually reviewing badly, but this was truly disappointing, which is made worse by the status of the hotel. Will never return.
