The hotel doesn't look like it's going to be anything special when you first arrive but once you get in, you realise it's a wonderful haven. The grounds are extensive and accommodation is in small buildings dotted around the property in between lots of lush greenery. There are lots of different areas to sit so you can always find a quiet spot somewhere whether it's by the lovely pool, on a swing or at a table tucked away in a corner.
We actually arrived from Europe very early in the morning and they let us into our room immediately which was not only much appreciated but also a sign of what excellent customer service they have. All staff – without exception – were incredibly friendly and helpful.
Our room was very nice with a nice large sitting area, a spacious bathroom and a really comfortable bed. There's free wifi and also a library of DVDs for you to watch in the evenings but equally, if you don't want to stay in, you can easily walk into town as it's only about ½ mile or so.
Saddles, their restaurant, served really good food and their continental breakfast was nice as well although it could perhaps have had a few more options if I was being picky – and their complimentary cheese and wine event every evening was great too.
A really wonderful place to stay.
