Our room overlooked the pool, which cost more than some other rooms. We expected some noise 5 floors below us from the pool. Children playing wasn't the problem. What was objectionable was that they begin playing MUSIC over the property's loud speakers: 7- 7:30 AM on the weekend mornings. When my husband and I get away for R & R we would like to sleep without an alarm. No loud music early morning, thank you.
The food was good and they will serve 1/2 portions at their fine dining restaurant (Brock's) if you prefer. My husband and I ordered a glass of wine and received a $12.00 "shot" of wine in a wine glass. Two or three sips was their glass of wine. We have traveled several continents to some of the most exclusive restaurants and have never been served a paltry serving of wine such as this. The server retrieved my husband's empty glass without asking if he would like another. [we had a glass of the same wine at their lounge upstairs before dinner and was served a regular portion].
The room was clean and comfortable. They promote their 300 TC sheets on their website which is not a good selling point since Walmart sells 400 TC sheets. If you don't have 500 + thread count bedding it's really not a good idea to use it as a promotional tool. Not a complaint - just something they should know.
When we received our room service on Saturday night, we were told they couldn't leave the TABLE for us to eat from as they were short tables. We ordered full meals, and it would mean we (one of us) were to eat from our lap since the room had only one movable chair which was at the desk. Not good for a resort property. We told the Room Service server that we would eat quickly if she would leave the table. She wasn't happy about it, but did leave it. Since it was not the server's fault, it was not fair to put her (or guests) in the situation. If room service had let us know we wouldn't get a table, we would have ordered a sandwich.
The Spa was very nice and the service there was great. I would go back to the spa.
The overall service was okay, and it is clear they are short-staffed so I wouldn't place any responsibility for that on the servers.
For some reason they charge $16.00 per night for valet parking. It is out in the country and it is not a space issue. We parked our own car.
