We stayed in a Quay Room with a beautiful view of the lake and golf course. The service was efficient and the room was huge- and very well set up. Room service food was not great and there was construction going on next door resulting in hammering and drilling for a large part of the day (but maintenance is required... More

I could not fault this place. The room was amazing with a view of the lake and golf course. The bathroom was one you dream about. The staff were just lovely and the food couldn't have been better. We have stayed in other peppers resorts and this one did not disappoint.
