Thank you for your review, I do agree that we do have a fantastic location. The directors of the hotel have been investing and improving all areas since the day they purchased it and are continuing to do so, we are currently half way through our bedroom and bathroom refurbishment and will move on to the lounge and public areas in the near future I hope you return in the future and see the improvements.
