We were greeted and looked after by the most amazing team!
Lara our waitress was so attentive and could not do enough to assist us.
Rodolphe was truly world class. Honestly we cannot say thank you enough for making us feel so special and choosing excellent wine.
Derry was also fabulous with his wonderful charm and we left the bar feeling that this hotel just delivers heartwarming hospitality and epic service. We cannot wait to return...
In general, the staff were just marvellous. They made you feel special, they made you feel as though they were happy to be there to help, they looked genuinely happy in their jobs. They were efficient, polite, friendly and totally lacking in pretension, which is sometimes what you get in other 5* hotels and that doesn't suit my style at all. Every single person we interacted with were top notch.
Overall, I just can't praise this hotel enough. I was so sad to leave, and I really look forward to returning.
