4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We stayed for one night. Hotel and surrounds beautiful, very peaceful. A few small improvements like bathroom, drains blocked and would prefer 2 ply toilet paper. Our bath robes had holes in them, pillows were not comfortable at all and TV channels faulty.

Disliked: Staff & service
Looks nice, woeful customer service under C-19
Hotel closed due to Covid and trying to refund only 50% of the stay. Policy stinks but can't comment on the loveliness of the property - I would avoid purely on that policy though

Overall great hotel with lovely staff
Beautiful hotel with high service level. The staff is very welcoming, restaurants are serving amazing food for lunch, dinner and breakfast (one of the best I ever had!). Price value is fantastic overall. The rooms are clean, nicely designed and there’s nothing to complain... in detail there could be some cosmetics done.
