Convenient but mundane motel
Our room, number 315 had no telephone and we had to go to the main office for questions and assistance. We requested towels which never arrived this motel is very convenient to reach other sites and has beautiful grounds. The restaurant however had great service good quality food. The restaurant however was very accommodating to our special dietary needs. Kudos for them.

Refreshing country manor hotel in rustic setting

Spectacular restaurant. Exceptional service. Polite efficient front desk.Lovely pool, gym, and hot tub. Rustic surroundings very relaxing.

Quiet relaxing time
We stayed here for the first part of our honeymoon. Professional and friendly check in. We were upgraded from a king studio to a family villa, which was quiet & secluded. We had the breakfast and dinner package, but the first night was fully booked until 7.45pm - which was very late for us and also missed the buffet, it would have been good if the hotel had called us and booked us in. All meal service was excellent, except for the Monday night - the lady treated us as if we were an inconvenience. Aside from that the food was great and rooms very clean.
