I was not made aware of dress etiquette for dining room, since I was just going for o e night and going on hike the next day I did not pack proper attire and had to get room service for dinner which of course cost a lot more. The next morning when I went down for breakfast the staff was not diligent keeping an eye at buffet line. People were taking/using tongs to grab food and bread and leaving them on top of the food! In this time of a potential deadly virus going around I would think they would have been more diligent! Other than that it’s a beautiful place

Overnight business trip

Room was comfortable. Staff very friendly. Food on the expensive side and very average. Paid £13 for Caesar salad which was just lettuce and Croutons with a little dressing. I would expect a little mor3 for the price.

Great 1 night break

From pulling into the car park to leaving the car park- fabulous! Room was small but I knew that- great view, spotless. Very comfy bed, everything compact and a place for everything. Used the pool and the spa , again , just perfect. Lovely walk- muddy - into Charlestown and so easy to taxi back if needed for £5 Evening meal lovely, reasonably priced too. Breakfast very tasty and plenty of choice. Nice touch having a pot of coffee brought to the table. Really a total chill.
