Perfect stay

We just spent two nights at this beautiful hotel and couldn't have had a better stay. All staff were pleasant and accommodating, especially Hojni, who served our dinner on the second night. We are not used to fine dining but her kind attention put us completely at ease. Our suite was stunning, comfortable and spotlessly clean. For such a busy hotel it was surprisingly quiet at night. Breakfast was buffet-style and the pastries were particularly yummy. Dinner was very posh, so be prepared to step outside your comfort zone if like us you are more used to pizza and curry! We fell in love with Ashley bunny and will be taking her on our travels in future!

Totally wonderful hotel

Spent another fantastic relaxing week at this gem of a hotel, as a complete unwind after a busy few months at work. The team at the hotel are a joy, being friendly and attentive. The food is superb both in the brasserie and in the main restaurant. On the waiting team Lewis and Colin looked after us excellently, and the whole visit from check in the check out was perfect.

Views to die for, great rooms, wonderful staff and exceelent food. Ticks all the boxes!

Birthday afternoon tea and one night stay

Such a beautiful hotel, in a stunning setting. Afternoon tea was delightful, and the staff were so friendly and obliging. We stayed over as a treat for a friend's birthday, and it seemed as though every member of staff in the hotel wished her a happy birthday, she said it was a perfect gift. The room was beautiful, with a very kind upgrade to a Lake View Room, so naturally we took full advantage of the view and watched the sun go down, before we retreated to the bar and lounge. So many beautiful lounges to choose from. Breakfast in the utterly fabulous dining room was delicious. I'd love to sit in that dining room, enjoying an evening meal and watching the sun go down - such a decadent room. Only sad thing was we left our scones behind after they had been so carefully wrapped for us, and we forgot to buy two bunnies for our little girls - obviously too busy enjoying ourselves for a change. We will return …...
