To start with reception staff (especially Hannah) gave us a very warm welcome, our package was explained to us, showed us to our room where the hot tub was up to temperature and ready to go. Any questions we had were answered fully and straight away. The room we had was Bird Island and was great, although if you are vertically challenged do take a set of steps with you to get in to the bed (very high).
We cannot fault the maître d (Louis), he was very helpful and attentive, constantly (but not excessively) checking we had drinks and that the food was as expected. He guided us through our wine choice as we have very little knowledge and the wine list was extensive.
Well what can we say about the food? It was without doubt the best food we have eaten. The head chef (Cal) and his team have done the hotel proud. It is not surprising they have the reputation and awards they are truly deserved.
All in all a fantastic stay and we will definitely be visiting again.
