We went for two nights away expecting a luxury resort and booked a honeymoon suite to really indulge. However our "honeymoon suite" was just a large corporate looking room with bland dated furnishings and a wobbly four poster bed. But to really top it off there was crinkly plastic mattress cover on our bed. Nothing discreet about it, it was a thick nasty plastic covering, not something you would expect in such an expensive room. This is what i would have expected if i was staying in a cheap b&b. When i fed back at check- out they simply advised that it was there for hygiene reasons. Well it did not work as we took it off the bed.
The spa also left a lot to desire. The swimming pool was amass with hair.
The restaurant was okay but the breakfast was hideous. You ordered items from the menu through a waitress service, my husband had a sausage which was stone cold (clearly they microwave chilled items as it was cooked through), when he told the waitress she said "oh well".
I would not recommend this place to anyone as there were absolutely no highlights except the beautiful and amazing wedding that we attended that weekend.
