Nice enough, but not as advertised
Posted Jun 15, 2015
This is a small country hotel on a island full of sunshine. Rooms were spotless and our junior suite, suited as well as it was light and airy with super views and very private. This is not the same for other rooms which seem to be tucked away under trees etc, so no view at all. Our balcony was very small, space for two chairs and nothing else - great view over the valley though.
Do not expect the facilities advertised to be available. This hotel promises a lot and doesn't deliver. During our stay there were no painting classes, drawing classes, wine cellar not open, bread nest not open. Very disappointing.
Inside the hotel is spotless. Outside more care is needed. Jacuzzi water is murky, cold and full of tree debris - not aromatic and scented as described. Pillows for the pool loungers are a nice touch, unfortunately they are very very grubby. Pool area while nice is generally in need of lot's of TLC.
Staff are friendly and helpful, when asked for something. But it is one of those hotels were you have to ask all the time. Especially at breakfast, where a lovely spread is let down by consistently empty platters, running out of eggs, bread etc etc. So it's a bit of hard work being a guest!
So if you are prepared to go with the flow, enjoy the quiet countryside then you'll probably enjoy it here.
