We stayed at the south gap in October. From check in to departure the whole holiday was amazing. The location is in the heart of st lawrence which comes alive at 9pm. The rooms are spotless and extremely well equipped for your stay. The views from our room were amazing. The staff also are so so friendly and helpful and nothing is too much for them to make your stay pleasant. I mentioned we were celebrating our anniversary and we came back one afternoon to find that reception had organised a bottle of bubbly. Really thoughtful gesture. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel as one of the best self catering hotels we have stayed in. Hopefully will come back in the future. Read less
