The service was excellent and the food was of good quality. On the first night we dined in the hotel's restaurant and on the second night we visited the... More

We stayed 2 nights on a dinner bed and breakfast basis. Our room was in the pavilion which is separated from the main building and is very quiet. Our room (number 263) was spacious and overlooked the tennis courts and the golf course. On arrival we went on to the balcony and found an ashtray full of cigarette ends. This... More

We stayed here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were given a free upgrade to an executive room in the Pavillion. The room was large and very well equipped. The balcony would have been great if weather was better. Everything was clean and in a good state of repair. Plenty of extras including filter coffee maker and shampoo, shower gel... More
