We were greeted by the owners and shown to our rooms. How pleasant they were nothing was too much trouble. Our room was beautiful...

We were recommended by family to this venue but were met with inefficiently, excuses and disappointment.the answering machine failed to take our booking, there was only one waiter on, three items were off the menu, we went on a group on coupon and were told there was a price restriction, I ended up with scampi and chips. Really disappointing.
