As you've probably guessed by now, we loved this place, although I do agree with some of the other reviewers that it is perhaps a little remote if you don't have a car.
The only downsides for us were that the bar was really expensive and we got the hard-sell at checkout to join their rewards club - left a bit of a bad taste after such a wonderful stay. But all in all we'd highly recommend this place.
