Friendly helpful staff and excellent food. Compliments to chefs with the well prepared ox tail. We stayed at Lavender Cottages close by all amenities and beach with the kite surfers. The surrounding beaches and lagoon allow excellent photo opportunities.

Room Tip: Lavender Cottage well equipped for self-catering. Quiet surroundings

This was an amazing weekend we enjoyed it so much. The food was very nice and the staff was friendly. The atmosphere, the view and the birdlife has contributed to a peaceful calm stay. I would most definitely recommend Farmhouse Hotel to any of my friends and family. I would also go back for their delicious whole weat home baked bread. :)

We stayed two nights at the Farmhouse and the staff were very welcoming when we arrived. They promptly announced that they had upgraded us to one of their best rooms. They then surprised me by asking me if I could pay upfront. I didn't go into do you know who I am routine and quietly gave them my credit. I am struggling to get used to the new world of cads?
The room was very fine with wonderful views in every direction. Lovely bathroom and sitting area.
All was wonderful in the room except the television was clearly twenty years old and didn't seem to have any sound. England were playing rugby against France in two hours time and my wife and I wanted to see the match. I phoned reception and maintenance came and worked for over an hour try to get this ancient set to work. In desperation they said they would change the television and I thought wonderful we will be seeing the match on a flat screen. To my amazement they returned struggling with in with an even older very heavy television. (took two to lift it) By this time a very nice girl from reception had joined the two maintenance men and the tree of them struggled to get this in place.
Finally they got it working for two minutes but sadly the picture died along with the sound.
(I think the valves must have blown) . At this point the lady disappeared and very kindly returned with a ice bucket and complementary bottle of white wine. A very kind thought.
All worked out in the end as we watched the match somewhere else. A Third old Tv is now in the room and is working
The food and service was excellent and with a little bit of money invested this would be a lovely hotel.

Despite caveats on the web booking page there is no warning that almost all rooms are susceptible to noise pollution.
Even after complaints and a room change no senior staff member saw fit to speak with me.
Overall my intended relaxing two day break turned out to be very expensive and disappointing.
The views and location are fantastic....but that says it all

Room Tip: The little 4 person suite is the best

Non-existent 4* anything! - Hotel lacks any form of sophistication, light, up to date anything - appalled by the food quality as well as the slow staff in every aspect.
Room Service, cleaning, bed-turning down etc - non-existent
Bathrooms old and outdated - lacking hot water after row of rooms obviously showered same time
Pool - call it a plunge pool
Monies stolen - no call from Management to explain or apologize
I would rate this no more than 2* in my travel experience
Warm beverages in bar
Cheap and skimpy breakfasts - and painfully slow service
Function food appaling and inedible
No sun on patio strip we were on - cold area and dark and generally lacking any form of view, vision etc

Room Tip: We had corner room - think the "best " room - however, being woken at 5am by other peoples...

We spent 4 nights at this hotel and we could not have chosen better. The view from all the windows is wonderful. The room is large and breezy, fresh and clean. The staff are friendly and efficient. The food at the restaurant is wonderful, fresh ingredients and the chef is obviously a pro!
We will definitely return to this lovely hotel.
