It's been around a long time now but I've never been before. Main reason, the resort is quite near where I live, so not much of an adventure to get there. However, get there we did for a special treat recently and so glad that I did. Only mistake was we didn't book another night.
What struck me first, were the grounds, expansive and meticulously maintained with its own ruined castle to explore if you like that.
Check in was very friendly and easy. Our room, quite a trek from reception, but worth it when we got there. I believe our room was one of the standard ones and it was HUGE with everything you would need for a very comfortable stay. The bathroom, equally huge with bath and seperate shower. Light lunch in the bar was good and service very friendly and attentive.
Dinner in the Bell Tower was exceptional, kudos to Thomas for very genuine and professional service there. Afterwards, the bar located in, I think, an old dining room HAS to be seen. It's beautiful. Thanks to Trevor (Guest relations) for telling us about it and for the extra sparking water!
Breakfast, served in the Bell Tower, continental starters and then table service for the cooked to order food. I wish I had checked the name of our breakfast waitress who was FAB.
Attention to detail in the décor everywhere is so obvious. Hats off to the interior designer, very interesting artwork on every wall, nook and cranny.
The pool - very good, Gym - the same, one of us used the SPA and reported it to be very good.
If you play golf, it's a hop, skip and a jump to the club house and the course surrounds part of the hotel building.
Overall - WOW. We'll be back and as soon as possible. Bravo
