This was supposed to be a romantic getaway, but was so so marred we ended up having to laugh about it looking back. Both taps in the bathroom ran HOT water, it took nearly an hour to get breakfast served and be warned, do not leave anything behind. Despite management acknowledging they had found my belongings, nothing was ever returned and getting through to anyone on the phone via anything other than the booking line was simply not possible. Sadly the gardens were also a great disappointment, very unkempt and run down. This had been something I was looking forward to seeing, but the quality of plant care and landscape maintenance was pitiful. A nice place once upon a time I think, sad to see it in the twilight of its existence. Certainly marketing itself on past glories.
