My mother has been in the above from January 2014, and I visit her regularly and different times/days. I have always found the above very clean/friendly staff and a very good atmosphere on all occasions. They provide both physical and mental stimulation and always make me feel welcome and engage in conversation. It is great peace of mind when on holiday by exchanging email and keeping me up to date. I would highly recommend Annahilt Four Seasons most definitely.
