To celebrate father in law's 60th birthday, we stayed here so that the boys could all play golf together.
The hotel is having a bit of an overhall, so we had to book in at the temporary reception area that belongs to the golf club. That was a bit scarey as quite scruffy - but once through to the main hotel it was all fine.
We had a really nice room, which although not very big seemed really cosy. It had a lovely bed, nice soft furnishings and nice bathroom - all spotless.
While the men played golf, we used the indoor pool which was fab, the sauna, steam room and jacuzzi, which were all really great and again spotlessly clean.
Apparently both the golf courses are really good - but that's all greek to me!
The main thing I want to mention about this hotel is the quality of the staff. Everyone we spoke to - and in particular the waiters in the downstairs bar and the restaurant - were so friendly and helpful, they really couldn't do enough for you, and it seemed as if nothing was too much trouble for them. What a pleasant change! So often these days you can't find anyone who even speaks english - let alone wants to help you! The staff here should be commended.
Finally the food. Yummy delicious and plenty of it. No matter what you ordered it was truly delicious.
Can't really fault anything here - had a very nice weekend and would definitely go back.
