I used to stay at this hotel many yrats ago and it was very tired. I am happy to say that they have revamped and it is now very nice. Perfect location with magnificent views. Large rooms and good bathroom facilities. Will make this my regular place to stay.

We decided to have Sunday lunch but found out they only do an evening buffet at the hotel. The view is great , food limited but very good and a nice selection of wines. Price is slightly above average but good value.

There are many reasons to be happy about staying here, but best of all is the attitude of the staff. Nothing is too much trouble and there is always a smile.
