Just got back from our Groupon weekend away and we were really really impressed!
Arrived and we were shown to our room (room 2) which was second from the end of a row of 10 chalets. The room is well furnished with a comfortable bed, a small desk and a wall mounted LG TV. The TV has a selection of freeview channels and lots of movies you can rent as well which was an unexpected bonus. The ensuite shower is a rainfall shower and comes with free shower gels, shampoo and conditioner and moisturiser which is handy.
The room also has an ironing board, an iron, hair dryer and a safe for any valuables you may wish to leave in the room. There is also a giant mirror which is slightly disconcerting and I'll admit we turned round as you felt like someone was always watching you!
The bed is soft - a little too soft in my personal opinion and some firmer pillows would be good but that's just my own preference.m
The only criticism I had of the room was the window at the front of the room gives you very little privacy which is a bit of a shame but on the plus side there is also a little sitting area out the front of each chalet which is very private and I can imagine would be lovely on a summers evening.
The food for our meal was incredible and the service was brilliant. I had the goats cheese starter which was very light and my husband had the boneless pork rib which was beautiful - I'd highly recommend it! We both then had steaks as a main which were perfectly cooked and for dessert I had the banofee pie and he had the creme brûlée which were again both wonderful.
We treated ourselves to a bottle of LP Rose which was a reasonable price and perfectly chilled.
The breakfast was good but I'd recommend having the eggs Benedict with the sauce in the side as there is rather a lot of it.
We would totally go again and recommend it to anyone, very impressive service and excellent food. Total bargain :-)
