Five stars - except the reservations department!
Wonderful property spoilt by reservation which went embarrassingly wrong. Group arrived with all wrong names, could not check in as a result and reservationist just blames Hotels.com. In fact, stated that she does not understand what I am unhappy about! Very poorly handled - not what you expect of this type of establishment.

Beautiful Hotel, Room & Views
The weekend didn't get off to the best start ... I specifically booked for a room with a balcony and view of the golf course, but was put into a dark, bottom corner room with a view of a garden wall. I did complain to the front desk, and after 20 minutes I was moved to a room that I had originally wanted/booked (coincidentally the same room as I stayed in the previous year). From what I understand, it wasn't entirely the Hotels fault, but they need to find a better way to handle their bookings and customer service. I should get what I paid for. The new room was very nice, very clean and had the most amazing views. Breakfast was very nice, though they were very slow to replenish items that ran out on the buffet. I will return again, and would recommend staying here, there are just a few small things for them to work on.

Excellent all round, a large lovely one bedroom apartment with everything you could possibly need other than a washing machine - but for this they offer a laundry pick up service . The restaurant food was very good , and we tried several different dishes all excellent and large helping i suggest you miss out on starters unless you have a Huge appetite! The breakfast which was included was a full selection of cold and hot foods delicious .
