My daughter and have coming to the for several years - on this occasion we stayed for five days and wished it could have been longer. We had room number 6 which is excellent for anyone who is disabled in any way. The bedroom is large with two windows on one wall and french doors leading out to a garden table and four chairs where you can sit out and not be overlooked. Because of all the windows the room is very light. The furniture is all built in - was only done within the last couple of years -using a lovely light light wood and obviously fitted by a craftsman. We had twin beds, very soft and comfortable and the bedding just as it should be with colourful cushions to finish off the effect. The bathroom was very spacious and there was a chair for the shower which was a boon for me.There was a disabled parking space at the side of our room which was very convenient.
There are two lounges - both with comfortable settees and easy chairs. Ideal for getting to know fellow guests after dinner. There is also another lounge containing a bar.
At the back of the house there chairs and tables(all beautifully made in wood) for sitting out when the weather is favourable! Also a fountain and pool with many different kinds of fish.
The times for dinner are staggered to suit all preferences. There is an excellent choice of menu and all different food requirements can be catered for. The food is delicious and varied and the desserts are to die for! The service is excellent and the waiters and waitresses are most pleasant, friendly and efficient.
Mark is the manager - he is very approachable and can solve any problems which may arise. The rest of the staff are most helpful and nothing is too much trouble for them.
It must be obvious why my daughter and I keep coming - now we look forward to next year!
