Alasdair Wann's Review

"The package was superb" Very rarely does a hotel/restaurant exceed expectation. The whole package was superb. The main point was the outstanding finishing and decoration & soft furnishings. The progression from 'basement' up to the crows nest was brilliant. Not forgetting the staff. Wonderfully engaging team. Alasdair Wann...
