Very polite and helpful host. Informed us the local pools attraction had changed their hours and would close at 6.00pm instead of 9.00pm as usual, without this information we may have missed out on experiencing the pools. Very clean property and well situated.

Birthday Night Away
Really great stay at the St James, lots of extra things such as underfloor heating and electric blankets really made it the 5* experience. Rooms are pristine and very comfortable, beautiful view of the mountains. Would definitely recommend.
