Myself and my partner booked a w/e stay at this hotel because of the lavish photographs and description in their online brochure. We were met by the manager Francesco who was very polite and helpfull. The hotel is very clean and all the staff were polite. I do have a couple of issues though. One of the main reasons we booked the hotel was the swimming pool in the photographs it looks very peaceful and idyllic it was a lovely summer week end and we looked forward to lazing by the pool. The trouble with this place is it is also a busy restaurant and Saturday and Sunday lunchtime the place was packed. The people and their children that were having lunch were dinning outside and monopolizing the pool the surrounding tables and most of the garden furniture. The place resembled Butlins rather than a 4 star hotel, with children screaming and jumping in and out of the pool rather than the idyllic retreat the place is advertised as. There is a large sign along side the pool saying that it was for the sole use of residents after 3.00 pm but neither the staff or the customers took any notice of it. On our first night staying at the hotel we decided to dine in the restaurant the service was very slow as there was a function in the main dinning room. I ordered a Rack of Lamb and considering it took nearly an hour to arrive consisted of 4 small lamb cutlets that were virtually raw. The following night we ate in the restaurant and I had a well done burger!
The hotel is a lovely but it is also a busy restaurant and function venue, it is very expensive and if you are looking for a quite retreat to unwind this is not the place. My total bill for the week end was over £550, the rooms were nice but the food is only average I dont think it represents value for money and I would not return.
