Not modern, but clean, spacious and elegant. The next day we fully experienced how service minded the staff... More

This was our first visit and will definitely not be the last. From the moment we arrived the staff were very friendly and accommodating at all times. The facilities at the hotel were excellent and the adjoining golf course was superb. The food was always of a high quality and very well presented. Looking forward to returning next year!

Superb hotel and facilities, coupled with exemplary service levels. Food was of extremely high quality, albeit that this was also reflected in the pricing. Circa 37 rooms all positioned around the central hotel facility.
