We went on the Triple Treat break, I honestly don't know how they manage to do it - the choice and standard of the food is wonderful, the cheerful service and attention of the staff just shows how happy they must be to work there. The rooms were so clean and comfortable - the only criticism I would have is... More

Breakfast just has to be the most variable in standard of all my dining experiences which varies from brilliant to awful.
