Great hotel. Good sensibly priced food. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. The golf course is OK - not one of the best designed course, but quite fun with good greens. Lots of ducks and geese on the golf course so lots of feces to avoid!

We wanted to book a double room but the hotel was full and we were offered a self-catering apartment instead. Our book-in was easy and we easily found our ground floor apartment - views over the golf course, tennis courts and on the other side was the outdoor pool and hotel dining room. We were amazed with the space -... More
