I had the pleasure of staying at the hotel during the first week of april in 2021. I regularly stay there and have been going to the hotel since i was 5. The hotel boasts some fantastic restaurants with an exception level of service. Fish market is an old time favourite. I fell sick during my stay and the staff bent over backwards to help in any way. I am by nature someone who expects the best in hospitality and I am often disappointed. On this occasion I can honestly say being impressed is putting mildly. The team is absolutely wonderful, the rooms are quite and comfortable. Truly my home away from home. Forget the other hotels, I guarantee no other hotel will give this level of hospitality, kindness and professionalism. All the staff are vaccinated and have weekly pcr tests. you could not be any safer either! Read less
