I stayed here two nights, three nights apart. The first night i was upgraded to a villa and the second night was in a normal room, which was still fabulous. Everything about this hotel is great. While i was staying by myself in the room, i was traveling with a group of friends. The hotel has lots of great facilities...

It is hard to describe this hotel because while it might perfectly suit some peoples' needs, it was not what I expected. It's also hard to decide how to describe the decor. Is it outdated or quaint? If you have a car and are able to navigate on your own, and if you are looking for a quiet location, then...

Reviewed 22 November 2013

This hotel is one of the most impressive and beautifully maintained hotels I have ever stayed in. It is themed round an old fashioned village with each room having a front and back door surrounded by beautiful gardens. There is a "village green and Main Street". The whole thing could be too much, but it is so well done and...

I stayed here for two nights. The grounds and the external building were very beautiful and inviting. The room was clean and comfortable but a little small. It was close to the airport so slightly noisy at times but not overbearing. The restaurant was yummy and the staff were nice, overall we had an enjoyable stay.

As a couple staying here for only one night we will definitely be back. The whole place is beautiful, the rooms are very tidy and the bathroom modern and clean. The bathroom included full-size bottles of shampoo/conditioner etc which was a nice touch. The bed was large and comfortable. We liked the hotel room for a short stay, and had...

The staff were AMAZING - nothing was a problem and they anticipated nearly every need. It was like thinking you are going to a local fair and then getting Disneyland instead. Service, food, ambience - everything was superb. I highly recommend this delightful experience.
