    Romantic Weekend Break

    The grandeur, the comfort, the facilities, the location, the staff.

    The leisure complex is a little tired, but pleasant nonetheless!

    Beautiful, charming and perfectly located

    Spacious rooms and vaulted ceilings. Extremely comfortable beds and wonderful views of the city.

    Sloppy paint job in the room. The shower drain was clogged and the shower floor was very slick and dangerous. Easy fixes though to bring the room up to speed.
