We enjoyed our stay at the hotel and loved the pool which is a great plus. I requested an additional duvet as the room was a bit cold. This only arrived after a prompt an hour later from me. Apart from that the breakfast was top class, dinner was excellent and the staff helpful. Management could do with another person on reception at busy times. I'd definitely stay here again.
