Absolutely Amazing hotel!!
We travelled for our 25th wedding anniversary and stayed one night. From airport pick-up (with free wi-fi in the car) it was 5-star luxury all the way!! The rooms are gorgeous, the staff is fantastic and the service is top notch! Best turn-down service EVER! No ordinary breakfast buffet, oh no they serve every table with its own buffet tray!! The private jacuzzi was the reason we picked this hotel and we are so glad we did - one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at. The only thing I would change is to have a vanity table with a stool, mirror and electric outlet so you can sit down and do your hair and make up instead of standing at the bathroom mirror with the hairdryer plugged into the shaver!

Fabulous - staff so friendly and attentive
Fabulous hotel! All the staff were friendly and so attentive. We stayed for two days without leaving the hotel and it was treat after treat. We booked a suite and enjoyed our balcony with jacuzzi. Bathroom was large and very beautifully presented. Spa treatments (body scrub and hot stone massage) were wonderful. Breakfast buffet was of finest quality and you could choose from a hot menu too. We also enjoyed our casual lunch and dinner and I thought the prices were very reasonable for the quality. Loved having a fridge with complimentary drinks and fresh milk for tea. Lots of beautifully furnished lounges to sit in and an amazing fishpond. Didn’t use the small gym but it had a good range of equipment. Everything has been thought of. Can’t wait to go back!
