The Hotel takes you back to a time of old world elegance .The accommodation and dinner package was wonderful value. We had a glass of wine in the downstairs lounge before dinner, which consisted of a bottle of wine and two courses. They were helpful with some difficult dietary requirements. The staff attitudes ranged from cool (becoming warm and ultimately very friendly) to those who went out of their way without prompting. The rooms were beautiful. If you really wanted to leave the hotel there is a live theater opposite. If the gaming room was in part of the bar area, rather than near the dining room , it would have improved the ambience even more.
