It wasn’t really a five star resort … it was a neat place but not what you’d expect for the price we paid.

This is an ok hotel. A little tired in places, lifts were dirty. Staff either very friendly or sullen. Basically a mixed bag, and I wouldn’t stay here again. Beautiful Christmas tree though!

Beautiful property very central to everything you’d want to visit. Unfortunately it seemed to be understaffed, had waited 15/20 minutes for a coffee. But the staff were very apologetic and went above and beyond to rectify any oversight or mistake. Hotel was spotlessly clean. Bathroom could have been better. Soak away in sing was dreadfully slow, Bath had a bad repair in the bottom and didn’t look nice as this is a 5 star hotel. Would recommend and would stay again.
