Our first overnight stop on our touring holiday, first impressions on arrival was good, cabin style units within landscape grounds in a quiet area adjacent to the lake. A friendly welcome at reception
and a suggestion that if we required dinner in the restaurant, was to book as there was a touring party in. We were allocated a ground floor apartment which had glass doors leading out onto a veranda looking over a small pond, the room was comfortable with a large bathroom with underfloor heating if needed. There is ample car parking facilities for each apartment. Our dinner was a very enjoyable fine dining experience with a wonderful selection of wines. The next morning we had breakfast a little later due to the restaurant looking a little busy earlier, the breakfast was very good with lots of choice.
We had a very pleasant stay at Peppers, all the staff were friendly and helpful.
We would definitely stay again.
