Fantastic room and amazing view. We booked a suite on two levels in the separate building, directly on the water. We loved it, as it was clean, comfortable and cozy. We appreciated the tasteful details as the complimentary cookies, the classical music that welcomed us when we entered the suite, etc.
The staff at the desk and the lady who owns the resort were all friendly, helpful and welcoming.
I would definitively recommend this resort to others and, if possible, I will return.
A few steps from the resort there is a lock that allows the boats to overcome a difference in water levels, very fascinating to watch at. For the rest there is not so much to see at walking distance, but the resort is so beautiful that you don't feel the urge to go away from it.
The reason because I didn't give the resort a full mark is the restaurant. I hope that the staff and the owner will take my remarks as a mean to help them to make the stay at Rawley's even better and not as an unmotivated criticism.
While the breakfast surely presents a pleasant touch of class through the complimentary serving that the house provides on its own initiative, waiting between 30 and 40 minutes for an omelette, when there was very few other guests, is difficult to understand. We also had to repeat our requests to waiters in two occasions (one morning for an extra cup of coffee, the next morning for an extra slice of bread) because they just forgot it. However, considering that we were on vacation, waiting longer than normal wasn't a big deal for us.
A little detail that I would suggest for the management to take in consideration is to add a spreader knife to the dish with jams and peanut butter, because it's not so great to spread jam on the bread with the same knife that one previously used to cut the sausages.
However, the part of the experience that left us not too satisfied was the dinner, also because in a classy place like Rawley and with such positive reviews, the level of our expectations was quite high. My piccata was just okay, while my wife's steak was definitively hard and tasteless. She also ordered a dessert and the pastry didn't taste fresh, but rather as it had been there for a while waiting to be served. I don't know... we had only one dinner there so it might have been just an unfortunate coincidence and probably all the other nights the dinner at Rawley is top quality.
