Liked: The bed was REALLY comfortable!The room view was superb, the staff were lovely, the food was excellent and I would gladly stay here again.
Disliked: The breakfast was great but the coffee let it down a bit. only due to the coffee strainer which was worn and let lots of "bits" through into my cup.Overall, a very pleasant stay
