We attended a wedding and stayed overnight. It is a beautiful location with fantastic views for the photos. The room was warm and comfortable and the dinner fantastic. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for the staff. They went above and beyond to help create a magical day. How this place is only three stars I do not know.

Guest Review

We attended a wedding and decided to stay overnight. Highly recommended. The venue is excellent for small weddings. The food was very good and the service perfect. All of the staff at Santos are an asset to the place from receptionist, bar staff, waiting staff and of course Santo himself. Everyone seems to take pride in their jobs and it shows. The bedrooms are very good, freshly decorated and the bed very comfortable. Plenty of places to sit and relax.

Santo and his team organised a perfect wedding celebration for my daughter and son in law. A wonderful location with stunning views providing a beautiful backdrop for photos. Fabulous food including great options for the vegetarians and vegan in our party. Santo provided help and advice during the planning and was a marvellous master of ceremonies on the day. He attended to our every need and nothing was too much trouble. His team were so helpful and well organised. We couldn’t possibly have asked for anything better. Highly recommended.

“Exceptional! We had our wedding at Santo’s 4th April and we were delighted with every aspect. All of the staff provided an excellent, friendly service and made everybody’s stay a very pleasant one! The food was fantastic – we had comments from guests that it was the best food at a wedding that they had ever had. The food at the restaurant the night before was superb too. All credit to Santo and his marvellous team, we loved every minute! Thank you for making our wedding so special. We will be back to stay and eat in the future for sure!”
