I stayed here recently with my family and what a disappointment:
1. The family suite was in a very poor state. Wall paper peeling, fittings old and not working properly, cracked/loose tiles in bathroom, no proper ventilitation of bathroom, kids bunk beds dangerous - I had to get it tightened up by staff. Furniture old and in poor nick. Room layout poor - access to ensuite directly opposite the main bed
2. Food in both bar and restaurant was good quality but nothing out of the ordinary - lacked imagination.
3. Wife's spa treatment was disappointing.
4. Hotel seemed to be under staffed, especially in spa/pool area
5. Fantastic natural surroundings - pity about synthetic grass on terraces.
6. Dinning staff hard working and very courteous.
All in all apart from the setting, our stay left a lot to be desired. The hotel management are "in a world of their own" if they think this jaded old lady of a hotel is of world class standard. They are plenty of other hotels with far better value for money.
