We had a lovely stay at the hotel and we will go back but make the prices for the food more attractive. The rooms are perfect and the spa is super. The kids want to go back in the summer so that is what we will do.

Wow! We had a night to fill enroute to our annual chalet holiday. Stumbled onto this hotel and was totally thrilled we did. The resort is a beautiful contrast of traditional old and modern new sitting in the middle of staggering beauty. The hotel delivered on every front - welcoming staff, clean stylish room and those staggering views. The kids spa was perfect - no big pool but the numerous water jets, hot pool and steam room more than made up for it. A grown up spa just for kids! So nice to get more than you expect from a hotel including a welcome drink - thankyou we will be back!

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at the hotel! Your staff was very welcoming and profession. They were able to inform us about local events that we would have otherwise missed (like the Cows coming down festival in Kerns!).
