Excellent experience, from the beginning to the end. The staff is friendly, the room was big, clean and cosy, spa access amazing and close to the Cottage. The faciltiy itself is amazing considering how old the structure is, the structure is quaint and very well kept which makes the experience even more pleasant. Another remark not to be forgotten is...
