Not good from start to end. Had a package deal for overnight stay, dinner and breakfast. Waited 30 minutes to check in when finally getting checked in girl made us wait while she took a phone call from another potential guest, not even a sorry or anything just "wait a minute."

We just returned yesterday after a 3 night stay at this hotel. We had only booked for 2nights but our girls aged 6 & 4 had such fun at the kids club that we stayed an additional night. There was even a soft play room for our 1 year old so everyone was happy. The secret gardens are beautiful, the... More

The hotel and surrounds were fantastic. The room was very spacious and well appointed. The staff were very helpful and room service was promptly and expertly delivered. The food was lovely and the wedding celebrations we attended went off without a hitch.

The hotel is beautifully situated just off the main road in beautiful grounds. The room was extremely spacious with two enormous twin beds and large bathroom with separate shower and bath. No mini bar, but complementary water in the fridge. A good TV with plenty of choices and tea and coffee supplied. The communal areas could do with a bit... More
