As with previous reviews, the hotel is a very interesting peace of English Colonial history, full of character and extremely relaxing. The Staff are so friendly and work long hours constantly trying to please visitors. I have no complaints with the staff but a few of the guests who seem to think they owned the hotel ! At the time l appeared to be the only single person there, and despite saying hello and smiling, l was ignored and stared at. manners and politeness cost nothing ! After two days l was welcomed by a lovely couple from Kent, otherwise l would have booked an early flight back home. It is not the place to stay if you are under 50 and like nightime entertainment. We joined a quiz one evening, it was fun but when our group won , the 'regulars' made snidey remarks and sulked . It then became evident, this was a 'clicky' holiday hotel/residential home for the minority who objected to anyone enjoying themselves. This was also reflected by the set menu, soup every night ! The bar food was really nice so B & B would be advisable. The swimming pool and terraces are perfect, tennis court and table tennis, although the TV room is outside in a brick shed. It would be best if the pool table was placed outside and the TV inside. I was lucky to have a room in the house as opposed to outside, but found it to be very dark and gloomy. But who spends their holiday in a bedroom ? Overall: quiet, relaxing, wonderful staff, shame about some of the guests though.
