We stayed for one night. Hotel and surrounds beautiful, very peaceful. A few small improvements like bathroom, drains blocked and would prefer 2 ply toilet paper. Our bath robes had holes in them, pillows were not comfortable at all and TV channels faulty.

2/10 Poor

Looks nice, woeful customer service under C-19
Hotel closed due to Covid and trying to refund only 50% of the stay. Policy stinks but can't comment on the loveliness of the property - I would avoid purely on that policy though

Overall great hotel with lovely staff
Beautiful hotel with high service level. The staff is very welcoming, restaurants are serving amazing food for lunch, dinner and breakfast (one of the best I ever had!). Price value is fantastic overall. The rooms are clean, nicely designed and there’s nothing to complain... in detail there could be some cosmetics done.

Not as good as last year
We visited last year and regretfully there has been some overall reduction in atmosphere and attention to detail. Room was excellent. Dining was mixed in respect that food remained excellent, waiting on tables and provisions like cutlery and breakfast buffet had dropped except for one lady , sorry cannot recall her name, who appeared to be in charge in main restaurant; she was very good and definitely knew what she was doing. The bar provision was poor. I like gin and my first 4 choices although listed were not available.. and they were not rare ones. Sad to see the drop. However still serene and tranquil place.
