“What a fantastic hotel. Was here for just one night to catch up with friends, wish it was for longer. Sitting in the bar with a cocktail looking over the water. What else could you ask for.”

Tipping Our Team

Most of our guests now prefer to pay via debit or credit card and be able to include a service charge for great service. To make this easier we have added an automatic service charge - we’ve made it a default 10% which you can change to any percentage you wish, including no service charge.

Our teams have always shared service charges and this is no different - every penny you give is shared equally by our teams through our “Fair Fund”. There is no administration cost and nothing is retained by the company, 100% of what you give is guaranteed to go to our team.

Service charge is entirely optional, if you would like us to remove it, you need only ask.
