First visit, on Travelzoo deal. Words can't express how much we were impressed by hotel. Superb, well-presented meals; very friendly, well-trained staff, well-appointed room. Also applaud innovative environmental measures eg re-cycling bins and scheme to exchange daily room cleaning service for discount in bar.

Ambience, food,Rooms,and staff were excellent.Only problem I found, is there is not one sign from turning off the motorway to the hotel, and I choose not to use a sat-nav.Just one to point me in the right direction would help
