Ups: Excellent staff. The room was well kept. Good option of having sparkling on arrival - which we did have, and it was chilled on arrival. Great table tennis and snooker table. Downs: Pool was not fantastic and the king bed was 2 king singles made together; which was fine. Will stay here next time. Best hotel i've been to...

Stayed here two nights with my hubby... Cosy room (We requested Room 6), very friendly hosts, lovely scenery just outside the window. My hubby cooked steak on the 2nd night and we had the covered backyard entirely for ourselves. We strolled around the property, a very quiet and romantic place to stay.
