I had reserved a room online through jovago and had booked one of the single cottages.
Check in was a nightmare. After three managers were called over and after a lot of whispering happened, I was reluctantly given my room key. No one at reception told me about the pool being out of service or anything about the wifi system and how to access it. Considering this was the first point of contact with anyone from the hotel, I wasn't impressed.
The room has the potential to be amazing. I liked the idea of a single cottage away and the private space but the room does not live up to anything that was described on the website. Even in the simplest of things, there was no water in the room, or tea/coffee facilities. The website said there was a bathtub in the room- there wasn't and also the TV signal was horrendous and I couldn't get reception on any of the channels.
It truly was peaceful and it's just a shame that the details and the interaction with the staff left me disappointed.
