Dear Catharina G, Many thanks for your kind review of our hotel following your recent stay. I was pleased that overall you enjoyed your holiday with us and indeed that you would have no hesitation in returning. I am sorry you didn't like the main courses as much as others however with food being such a subjective matter, it is often difficult when providing group menus to hit the right note with everyone; that said, this is always our aim and our Head chef of over 5 years now, will no doubt see this review and give it due consideration. Thanks again and I do hope you will come back and stay with us for a private holiday in the very near future. Simon J Cotton General Manager
