Gorgeous place with fabulous views and excellent rooms but needs a bit more TLC as partbofvthe experience. Arrived after a long drive and asked for a cold drink - ice tea or the like and was offered either cold tap water or to buy a bottle of wine. Dinner had been arranged at the lodge (didn't want another drive shirt or not after the king drive) and was encouraged to go out and try I e if the towns excellent restaurants. Didn't go out but felt some pressure to do so. Dinner was simo,e but fine.
Their wines were superb drank and bought some home
