Every time I visit my friend I am treated in a very friendly and helpful way by all staff. Including the front desk and office staff, I know my friend has much improved in health since moving here. I'm sure a lot of this is due to the way she is treated, looked after and entertained, and have no reason not to recommend.

After mum was in independent living for many years we were very reluctant to the idea of a care home for her but at the age of 98 we feel she needed 24 hour care. We, the family, are very happy with our choice of Amarna House. A first class care home with very friendly and responsive staff and a variety of activities arranged by a dedicated team.
