Stayed overnight for a family wedding and were pleasantly surprised. Convenient location for us. We loved the hidden garden. An unexpected green place. A delightful spot perfect for the wedding ceremony.

Dear All I have the worst experience for the breakfast, we booked the rate include the breakfast, they hardly have anything as 4 star hotel. Although the hotel has the tour groups mainly from China, at least you need to offer the Chinese

The room was OK and the bed comfortable. Windows could open which was better than using air conditioning. Access to the swimming pool is strange as it is through a car park. The hotel location means easy access to Heide Museum via bus route of 2 buses and takes 45minutes.

Well designed, helpful staff, cooking facilities in unit although you have to ask for pots and pans and utensils and also need to know about the hidden child safety switch. Would definitely stay again.

I loved my room. Really nice even though it was the "basic" room. I loved the opening windows. The function we attended above Chill restaurant was great but the male head waiter with the dark moustache was obnoxiously rude to my fellow attendees.
