Impressive hotel - efficient check in - Good spa - thats about all the good points.
we booked a villa for the 3 of us - large 2 floor villa - bedrooms very small with the main ensuite room only having a small double bed. The bathrrom fittings were of a poor cheap standard.
Service - I dont know where to start - basically there wasnt any - the young staff are totally inexpereiced - it took 25 mins to get a glass of red wine and when it arrived it was actually hot - apparently they had run out of it in the bar and had to find some from the greenhouse resturant - hence it was very warm.
The greenhouse resturant - worst food all holiday - service terrible, no bread served, ordered soup and salads ( had a lovely lunch at petite ferme so fortunatley not hungary) - had to send them back - totally not as described and the dressing was like a thick sludge - disgusting. Manager not at all interested.
Breakfast - I have had better in a cheap motel - it was like a makeshift arrangement - 1 chef attempting to make omlettes on some camp stove - pathetic.
Very over rated - check ed out as soon as possible and cancelled my second night.
Fortunately managed to find a fantastic hotel on a wine estate called Asara Hotel - Relais & chateaux - apporx 15 miles away - would not hesitate to recommend this one.
Dont waste your money and stay here.
