Beautiful building in a stunning location, but the stay was marred by a number of issues. We started with drinks on the lawn. The drinks were expensive (£7.50 for a pint of lager, £6 for a small ramakin of nuts), but the tables were dirty and covered in empty glasses, and hence attracting wasps. The room was OK, but terribly hot. The room did have air conditioning, but it turned itself off every hour or so, so we kept waking up in the night roasting hot and having to get up and turn the air con back on. The bed had terrible roll-together, so all in all what should have been a luxurious overnight stay left us feeling exhausted!

We had a lovely time. The hotel is in the perfect location to relax and enjoy all the area has to offer. Your staff were all excellent and we’d like to single out Huyla in particular. She was so kind, helpful and caring. She is a real asset to your team.
