CARVALHO, 9 months ago

The hotel was recently refurbished, but refurbishment not complete. There was a galleried dining area with windows looking on to the garden, but we were asked to sit in an inside area. (There was no one in the galleried area during our stay.) Overall a good holiday with the above comments that should be attended to.
