The staff are very friendly and helpful in finding the right safari park for us to visit. The food at dinner was pretty awful but we compensated by placing a candle-lit table outside at the lakefront and a...

The location is lovely. We also really liked the large pool. Our room was clean, but definitely in need of refurbishment. The food was ok, but not great. Choice was also limited. Overall a fairly decent hotel.

Got to room to find that the side lights didn't work, fan had only one speed, and air conditioning gizmo didn't work. As they were planning a wedding, we were given free supper in an upstairs, characterless room. The buffet was worth what we paid for it! Not good. Some awful musicians playing. Breakfast was not much better.
