This was an experience I will never forget, not only were the grounds clean including the pool but the view. If you want to be away from the city family work this is the place for you. I will surely be returning.....

There are some good restaurants nearby, but the rooms are... More

I spent 6 of the most relaxing nights recently with my girlfriend at this lovely place. Everything about it was just as amazing as we hoped and our only regret was not being able to stay longer. You can be sure that we will definitely be going back.

Hi Jameela, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We always wish to exceed expectations and so share in the disappointment of your experience with us. The bathroom you mentioned was designed to be wheelchair accessible, hence the open plan 'wet room' layout. We do have traditional garden studios with separation between the toilet and shower. The...
