A very inviting hotel with the most stunning views!
The staff were very friendly and offered us lemonade on arrival. We were given a map and places of interest were marked for us to visit.
Our luggage was taken to our room and on entering,the first thing you notice is the wonderful view from the window. The room is lovely and the bed looks so inviting with big pillows and lovely crisp,white,sheets,with a bar of chocolate neatly placed on top.
My only gripe would be the bathroom was quite small.
We walked around the hotel and found the lovely swimming pool and decking area,but weather not quite nice enough to take advantage of.
The main lounge has full length windows to really appreciate the views,from the huge plump sofas.
And what a view! It was breathtaking!
Peace and quiet to enjoy the view and relax over a bottle of wine suggested by the waiter was just what we needed to recharge the batteries.
However,peace was spoilt by the fact young children are allowed. I am not against children,but i am against adults who believe children can do as they wish and run around disturbing this peaceful place!
We had the set menu at dinner,which was delicious and good value. The roasted rabbit i can recommend.
After a fantastic night's sleep,we had a fabulous breakfast before leaving.
I would recommend this lovely hotel,but feel the hotel should be more exclusive to couples or families with older children.
