Lovely location, we didn't stay at the hotel, but ate there twice. The views are stunning and the food and service was very nice. Lovely staff and the restaurants have been updated bringing the old and new together well.

Stayed in the Moy Suite which had plenty of room. Very enjoyable stay and plenty to see and do nearby. Breakfast was also excellent. The Jacuzzi and sauna outside are fantastic and a great view adds to the atmosphere.
