  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Loved the tranquil garden forest bathing and beautiful lighting. Close to Byron but far enough out to be really quiet.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Was turned away for having children and refused a refund. The staff were unhelpfull and rude. My family was then left without a place to stay. The site shows you in fine print that children under 12 are not welcome however they happily advertise that they are "FAMILY FRIENDLY" ???
