This hotel was comfortable and the staff were excellent and to be commended. They have an excellent chef and their evening meals were superb if you enjoy uncomplicated meals. His beef done in burgundy sauce with mash and assorted veg was excellent, as was his lamb shank and sherry trifles. On the down side the hotel needs to sort out its facilities for disabled people. There were no permanent ramps to get into reception, and it is always embarrassing for people in wheel chairs to have to send someone inside the hotel to obtain temporary ramps to provide access. There were no ramps on the main apartment blocks either and, although I wouldn't expect ramps at every entrance, I would hope to find 'Grab' handles or hand rails where there are steps, especially tiled steps which are prone to be slippy. One final thought, I don't think the hotel had any designated disabled parking areas though I didn't look very hard. I would recommend this hotel to anyone providing they weren't stuck in a wheelchair.
