Only a one night stay so all comments should be judged in that light.
We stayed in the most basic rooms (Mountain View?). The room itself was clean and comfortable if a little "cutsy" in decor for my taste. The bed was comfortable and well maintained and everything worked well but don't expect anythiong special. The soundproofing could be better but it never really bothered us.
The main lodge is really wonderful - very pleasant and comfortable. It was a delight to sit with a wine by the fireplace and relax. We had dinner in the restaurant in th evening and my expectations were not high however the meal was very good indeed. Not quite in the "superb" category but not far off. The service was generally very good and friendly without being too over-bearing. It was a bit expensive however at least it was good quality and very well presented.
What made our stay was the great recreation facilities. We used the mountain bikes for two rides and they were good quality in generally reasonable condition. The many well signed tracks and plentiful wildlife made for a great experience.
All in all this is a very nice place to stay and we look forward to going back next time for longer.
