I am very upset by the way I was spoken to by a waitress today. I came for afternoon tea with two friends. The waitress, Angelika, was extremely rude demanding for the paper voucher "now!". My friends were not even allowed to sit down at the table while I went to reception to print it out!!! Luckily, the woman at... More

Had afternoon tea with two friends here on a Sunday afternoon. We had a voucher for 2 and paid for the additional. One friend was visiting from the UK and had not experienced afternoon tea prior to this. Sadly it was not a good experience for her. When we arrived we were greeted by a female waitress (Angelika?) who was... More

Booked an overnight stay here and much enjoyed the experience. I was allocated a "studio" room. All I had expected was a room of a decent size with a good bed and (as I had specifically requested) a walk-in shower. Both my requirements were met, but the room also included a small kitchenette - fully equipped with a microwave, proper... More

Lovely spot for a wedding reception. Staff were very good, friendly and obliging, The food for the reception was amazing. Went for a look at the rooms and they were really nice. Huge beds, lovely dressing gowns with slippers, and little touches like toiletries in the bathroom.

25 years after coming to LGM for our honeymoon we returned as seasoned travellers and found a warm welcome and on the first evening complimentary champagne. Good room sadly not with sea view but great once golfers had gone. Comfortable bed and nice leisure facilities. To get 5 star review a little more local food and drink and Fair Trade... More

Served from 6-6.45pm served in Brasserie. Wide range of dishes - excellent quality and value for money. Staff - attentive and efficient - as always. £12.95 until August 31st every day. This option is offered at lunchtime too. A huge appetite - cod and chips!

Had a great seafood platter meal. With a complimentary glass of wine each, I can't think of a better lunch on a sunny day. There was too much in the end, with a lobster, mussels, oysters, prawns, shrimps, smoke salmon etc. Plus a dish of new potatoes in warm butter. Perfect! We sat out by the pool and enjoyed every...
