We were a large pary staying at the big house with 6 children ranging 7 weeks to 2 year olds.
First in a positive note i would like to say the staff were friendly.
Unfortunately, the first afternoon in, we had rain with thunders, and apparently one of the thunders messed with the electrical system of the house leaving us without AA.
Also the rooms include 2 beds put together that keep separating into a gap in wich our child kept falling, so be sure (even if you co-sleep!) to pack a travel bed for this hotel. (It had only one cot available at the time for our use). Also i do think this is very unromantic even for couples ;)...
The pool although little was nice and social areas are very well put together, clean and spacious.
The inn also includes a little bar/cafe and restaurant wich we did not try but looked great.
The second night in a row without AA was very unconfortable... The temperature in the house rised altough we did our cooking outside in the barbecue, and kept courtains closed during day and by night it was barely torable. We asked the staff for help, but apparently they dont own any fans. The only suggestion was to open the windows without the light on to avoid attracting too many mosquitoes.... Thank god we didnt followed it.
Just from the ins and outs of the day there were a lot!!! Even though we had electric anti-mosquitoes provided by the inn ON.
Needless to say, heat, babies and mosquitoes DO NOT MIX WELL...
So to be sure of enjoying this inn and getting your money worth pack anti mosquitoes and travel cot for your babies!
And i really hope they follow our suggestions and pick up a few fans for emergencies, beause it was certainly the downfall of our stay.
