Enjoy a gintastic weekend break at the hotel. Relax, unwind and learn more about this beverage on our special gin weekend.

Our Gin Bar stocks over 100 gins, from household favourites to the more exotic and unusual. The difficulty will be deciding which one to sample first (handy tasting notes and helpful staff do make the task easier).
