Had an amazing 10 days here and would go back. It was just sad that reception were totally inflexible on departure about trying to get a slightly later checkout time due to our 5 month old baby. Otherwise Service was impeccable.

Terrific hotel in magnificent surroundings. From the moment we arrived until we left the staff could not do enough for us.The hotel is in perfect shape renovated recently and was a pleasure to stay there. We had a deluxe room which overlooked the manicured gardens. Would love to return in the future.
