Just back from 4 nights at Goodings Groves. Whilst not absolutely perfect I would definitely recommend it. To start with the bad stuff, there is no getting away from the fact that you are not in town so if you are going out for the evening you are going to have to drive or get a taxi / lift. (some restaurants allora and holden mantz will come and pick you up). Also the automatic gates were not working when we were there, there is a manual gate but it would feel better / more secure once the automatic gates are fixed. Other than that it was excellent, room was lovely, well equipped and we slept very well. Nice pool to laze around when the wine tasting became too much. The manager Susan and her husband (sorry, can't remember his name) were excellent, when we arrived after a 7 hour drive from near PE, she wouldn't hear of us driving into town for dinner and booked a table and arranged for the restaurant to pick us up. She also personally gave us a lift to Grand Provence for our last evening - hope I am not setting susan up for a future of being a taxi service. Wish I was still there
