Everything was great, our room big and absolutely clean and comfortable, perfect accommodation surrounded by a marvellous garden, pure nature. The staff was very friendly and helpful always with a smile. Breakfast and dinner were very delicious with a wide choice. We felt so comfortable, we were very sad to leave this fantastic accommodation after two nights.

6 of us stayed at deer park over New Year's Eve, as part of an organised tour. We arrived late in the afternoon, but were still able to enjoy the fantastic outdoor pool. Even more impressive was the food organised for the evening. At one point we counted 13 chefs preparing an unexpected 5 course meal. The food was fantastic,...
