We enjoyed a half term family holiday. Most of our friends seemed to have gone skiing, but we decided half term is always too busy on the slopes so settled for a simpler option. We arrived relaxed having had a simple 2 hour drive and left feeling relaxed with this same short commute back home. Our friends on the other hand came back more tired than when they left. The building is no looker in the traditional sense, however as an architect I appreciated its Frank Lloyd Wright’esque low slung looks with slate and glass.
Very friendly service which combined a young European team that nothing seemed too much trouble for. The important part which I think made the difference was that they all had enough senior supervision from a caring bunch that ensured we were all been looked after. A nice range of facilities and all of a high standard with big comfortable rooms and plenty of privacy from each other. We had a Classic Family Suite which was recommended to us by Lyn the receptionist who took a lot of trouble when we booked to make sure that we made the right choices from the various accommodation options. Good food which all seemed fresh and tasty without been over fussy. Everyone enjoyed themselves and we all had a lovely time, so much so in fact that we went on to their Cornish Hotel, The Rosevine and enjoyed a few more days of R&R.
