Dear HuggieSRL, We are most pleased to learn that your stay with us was a pleasant one and you have enjoyed the classic style of our Hotel, and the quality of our golf courses. Comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast with wide choice of food and omelettes, the Championship golf course and the Resort course, were highlighted as some of the positive areas that contributed to the enjoyment of your stay.
