My collegue & I were here in early June after seeing the facility on the internet and I must say the first impression one gets immediately you drive through is that of a derelict facility. some basic weeding of the pavement edges will do much. Things however lighten up at the reception where the staff is really nice and interesting. The breakfast is balanced but basic and the standard rooms are kinda small with no closets.
Location is excellent and I hope that the ongoing renovations in the garden will be extended to the hotel main building.
