Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We loved lots about it!
Pros: Excellent quiet, private location, stunning views and landscape, super friendly staff, immaculate cleanliness, gorgeous food, very family friendly and safe feeling, but that should not deter couples as we were. Cons: only pizza available for lunch! Very good pizza but NO other options. Hotel should have a little on site coffee dock/ vending machine for sweets, Ice cream coffee, savoury snacks etc. No Netflix which is a must in this day and age.
