This is a lovely hotel in an idyllic spot, I can see why it is a popular wedding venue. We stayed as a group of 6 with 2 dogs and were accommodated in a cottage a little away from the main hotel. Although a cottage, it is still laid out as a hotel with individual rooms and is ideal for dog owners as soft furnishings are kept to a minimum. There are wood floors in the rooms, again ideal for the staff to keep clean after dogs have stayed there. We were in the Horton suite, which had a few problems, the radiator would not adjust, I reported it but nothing happened, so I stripped down the valve and carried out a repair to the adjusting mechanism. I repaired the toilet flush also.
The cottage would benefit from a coconut mat in the doorway, so as to wipe the sand and mud from boots.
The food was OK, and rather overpriced for the offerings, but I enjoyed it. Breakfast was good, especially the poached egg on toast.
The staff in the restaurants were always on hand and helpful. The beams and wood burning stoves in and around the restaurants added a great atmosphere. All in all a pleasant stay.
