We only had three nights at Fountain Place and needed longer to really appreciate the lovely surroundings of this beautiful place.
The whole experience was lovely from the beautiful suite we stayed in, and the delicious breakfast to the whole ambience created by the amazing fountains and gardens. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and we loved chatting to them.
It was an absolute treat to stay there and feel special.
We loved the fact that we had a separate lounge with a comfy couch and a fridge as part of our suite.
The bedroom, lounge and bathroom were all clean and tastefully furnished and we will definitely be back (maybe in the winter so that we can enjoy the fireplace in the bedroom!).
