Went here about 2 years ago and really enjoyed the whole experience, however this time the food was poor, overpriced, unpleasant music playing, cold and a bit messy. Such a pity given the wonderful settings.

Dear Qwendys123, Thank you for your comments, we are always keen to hear from our customers and hopefully improve our service. We do change the menu quarterly and although we try to remain very competitive the prices have to reflect the current market conditions. We're very lucky to have the stunning setting we do have and hope that we get...

My wife and I arrived on the 28th December for an overnight stay in order to attend a friends Funeral. The first impression on arrival is an impressive hotel on the bank of the river Dee. The hotel apparently was once a "Grand" private house and as you get to know the place it must have been quite something. Parking...

Great food, great location, service and details let it down. Expect for the first night, Davud a Turkish guy was really kind and helpful.. the others not as friendly. Long wait during dinner we had to ask for drinks and sweets, treated like a third tier customers. The second night they didn't find us a table for dinner, ridiculous.
