We loved the indoor heated pool (15m to swimmable); the outdoor vitality pool, the grounds, the golf course, and the hotel. Bed linens, china, glasses were best you can buy.The hotel design, decor and maintenance were PERFECT. Never stayed in a hotel of this size in which everything was so well cared for. The fresh flowers, books, art were all...

We've spent a weekend at this hotel which was very pleasant. The room was quite pleasant, spacious, however the sun woke us up early. The breakfast was marvelous as well dinner. One must take a walk at the gardens, golf since it's really very relaxing. To be honest, the only negative was spa. The massages were not so relaxing, and...

The food was easily as good as you would get at michelin star establishments in London and the wine selection was very extensive. The staff are very professional and efficient. It is not pretentious, making it more relaxing...
