My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights on a package that included dinner in la cascade and two massages. We really had a lovely stay in this hotel. I like that it maintains a little of the ramshackle, half chaotic feel that great country house hotels have, with lots of lovely five star touches. Our room over looked the falls, and it was amazing waking up to the sound of the water. The room was lovely, particularly the enormous comfy bed and the really luxurious bathroom - perhaps the peaches and cream decor is a bit dated but I think that it probably suits the building.
La Cascade was one of the nicest meals I've ever had. I'm a vegetarian and it was great to have a menu with three starters and mains on it especially for us;-). The food was super, the wine delicious, the service a leeeeeetle slow but I think that is reflective of the staff trying to give diners time to enjoy the experience. We sat out after dinner looking over the falls - it was magic.
Massages were super, thanks to the staff in the health centre. We didn't actually go to the pool, as the weather was great and we got out and about instead!
There were one or two little things that niggled. One glass that came with the prosecco that was part of our package had a chip on it (we worked away but it was a little dangerous!). It also would have been nice to have tea and coffee and a fridge in the room - just to enjoy the lovely surroundings with a cold or hot drink.
Over all, it was an excellent stay and highly recommended. Most importantly of all, the staff are polite, friendly, professional and helpful. They couldn't do enough and it is in them that this hotel really deserves its five star rating. We saw no salmon rising but can hardly blame the hotel for that! A real treat!
