  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
  • Disliked: Staff & service

Property set in beautiful location. Golf was great. Restaurant was a joke. Had booked half board and on 2 of our 3 nights were told the restaurant's was fully booked. When stating we were half board they agreed to book us in for dinner and said they had staffing problems. Staff very slow in attending and serving. Even when there were 2 staff members and only 2 tables!! Breakfast was a disaster. Buffet breakfast had cold items on 2 occasions, the 1st morning we had breakfast it was warm but had run out of some items. Hard go find a ckean table rhat was ser ready for us to sit at.

Fantastic

Fantastic hotel, great food, great staff and excellent spa and gym facilities, and I didn’t even try the golf courses! Exceptional value for money, would highly recommend.

  • Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
  • Disliked: Cleanliness

A little outdated and unclean

Good bits: The pool and grounds were lovely. The price was good. Bad bits: The room was dirty (we even found an old hard tissue when we moved one of the beds over slightly). Felt like the whole place (apart from the pool) was due an update.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Very well kept and clean. Not sure the recent negative reviews are accurate as saw nothing to suggest this hotel is in decline in fact it was more than we hoped for, rate was excellent, staff were ok, woman on reception was a bit snotty and could have made more of an effort to be less icy but everyone else was friendly. Room was clean and roomy if a bit too warm but you can’t have everything. Breakfast was nice. Will definitely be visiting again.
