Nice hotel rooms good size breakfast very good evening meal just okay. Restaurant staff very good ,but bar staff very slow and a bit lazy. Hotel noisy during the day due to building work were not told about this until after we arrived. Overall a decent stay but hotel at the top of a steep hill and I mean steep.
