We stayed for one night in december and I only wish we could have stayed for longer! The views are even better than can be captured in photos and the whole hotel has a lovely, calm, welcoming atmosphere.Johan, the assistant manager was simply superb in his manner with us and is clearly a consummate professional. All the staff were friendly and welcoming and we were lucky enough to try the cocktails in the bar before dinner. They were seriously good - the best we've had in a very long time. The restaurant food was nice but nothing special, a little bit heavy for my liking but perhaps that is just me. The restaurant itself is beautiful and a pleasure to dine in. If I had to find something to complain about it would be that our room smelled faintly of smoke when we arrived but with so much else to be happy about we really weren't bothered. All in all it was a fantastic stay and I would happily recommend this hotel.
