10/10 Exceptional

An amazing hotel. Great location. Superb staff and service. Excellent food. Room amenities great except bath towels too small, no bath salts or bubble bath yet a massive bath. Drain blocked in shower on first night. Moved to inferior room for one night. Shower fixed and we could move back to our luxurious room. Unfortunately at check out management decided not to refund me for part of cost for staying in an inferior room for one night to what was booked.

8/10 Very good

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.

2/10 Poor

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.
