I stayed here on a business trip, but I also took my family with me and we stayed in one of the new family rooms. Wow! It was amazing. We had a largish double bedroom with it's own large TV, and sliding doors opening out onto a small terrace which was completely surrounded by vegeation, thereby making the terrace completely private. There was a bathroom which was almost as big as the bedroom and separated from the bedroom by a glass wall (opaque at the bottom!). Then there was a really big lounge where the kids slept at night, which also had doors opening onto the terrace.
The hotel staff were great and would stop and say hello to the children even when we saw them out in the street when they weren't working!
The breakfast was the best hotel breakfast I've ever had, and when the weather was ok we could sit outside and eat, with views of the lovely gardens and giany tortoises wandering around. As well as the breakfast buffet which had everything under the sun on it (the freshly chopped - inn front of you - pinapple and strawberries were my favourite), there was also an a la carte breakfast menu. The kids loved the French toast with crispy bacon, and I dare anyone to order and finish the farmers omelette! They even had kippers!
In the evenings there were plenty of options for eating in the hotel, although we mostly ate in the bar (more of a lounge than a pub) due to the children. The food was of a very high standard and I particulary like the ostrich fillets.
There is an outdoor pool with plenty of sun loungers round it, and an indoor pool which is smaller but heated, and most days the children pretty much had this pool to themselves.
