When we arrived I was unsure about the hotel but as our stay progressed I did not want to move on. The staff were so friendly and helpfull and if a mistake occured we laughed together and it was quickly rectifed. It is a place to totally unwind and relax. Food excellent but a set menu at night but they would provide an alternative if asked. Again breakfast was excellent.
Aimee is the new manager and she needs to be given time to put her make on the hotel rather than being compared all the time to the previous couple, her enthusiasm is great.
Two small downsides, no airconditioning but we slept with the frenchdoors and windows wide open. Area around the pool needs to be more inviting.
