Just returned from a wonderful break at the Sheraton. I agree with all the other reviewers - it is a lovely, relaxing hotel with beautiful gardens. The food was very good - but yes very expensive!

We stayed with 2 adults and our kids of 8 and 10 years old in a townhouse. The house is very spacious but the interior is really not worthy of a five star Sheraton location. Small beds with old school blankets. In all the interior has a four star (if at all) radiation, tasteless and uncomfortable, some seats were collapsed....
