Nice place - but careful of the driveway
Posted Feb 8, 2015
Couldn't risk parking on the grounds. When we arrived I stopped our car outside and rang the bell. The gate opened and I drove in - scrape - the front bumper ruined. The receptionist basically told me it was my fault - no apology - how rude is that? If you look at the angle of the short ramp to the gate you will see why a normal car can't avoid scraping it's front - there have been numerous scrapes damaged vehicles - see the evidence in the deep grooves in the tarmac and compare this to the ramp next door. I then parked outside to avoid further damage - not a good to have to do this. This opening experience, together with the surly, rude attitude of the member of staff tainted the rest of our stay.
Good breakfasts - good selection. Although chaotic when all guests arrive at the same time - the kitchen was under siege one morning.
Pool in shade in the afternoon - did not use in the January heatwave.
Room OK, but no fridge or aircon. Or view. And not anywhere to put a bag - found myself scrabbling around on the floor a lot. And only one chair in the room.
Maybe we were given a duff room - we were told our room was allocated based on other guests getting up early for golf. We were up before them most days. I think they just wanted to please one group of guests, and never mind us. Well, I probably won't be staying here again - that's the way my cookie crumbles!
