History, charm and something special.
Whilst slightly dated the hotel and staff have a unique and very special charm. You can sense the unique history and how it was the place for the jet set in the late 60s'. Have returned many times for exactly that reason. Also the best hotel pool I have experienced and magnificent grounds.
