8/10 Very good

We stayed in a spa suite & it was truly lovely. The rooms were all large & comfortable. The bathroom had twin sinks & a separate door on the loo making getting ready for your day or dinner super easy. Pod coffee machine was a great addition.

10/10 Exceptional

From Check in to dining to the views it was all great. I’ve read many of the other reviews and am quite surprised. Our bed and pillows were some of the best we have seen on our trip. We both had the best sleep. Gardens are well maintained and service at reception and in the restaurant were great.

I thought the large Cypress trees cut off what would be a more expansive view, but really lovely outlook.

Verified Expedia guest review

6/10 Good

A little disappointed
Our room was furtherest from restaurant and car park which can sometimes be good, but that also meant wifi was useless, free movies (streamed) were useless. Also our dinner at restaurant was within ear shot of some conferebce having a trivia/team building night, and for the greater part of our romantic? Meal 1 team decided to plant themselves on small table within 1 metre of ours. Very disappointing which spoiled the excellent food put our by the kirchen.
