The food was DELICIOUS, both breakfast and dinners. DO NOT miss dinner!! No need to go anywhere else. The dining and lounge areas were exquisitely decorated and comfortable. But I LOVED the guys!

We stayed 2 nights in the nicest type of room. It was spacious, I had a great nights sleep. The staff were great, however some of the gardeners were a little strange and looked at you as you walked around...a bit odd. The food is adventurous, some of the breakfasts missed the mark but others were great. The aircon was...

What a fantastic place to stay. The gardens are beautiful. Very homeley, warm and romantic atmosphere. The food is excellent. 10 out of 10 for the chef. But the cherry on top are the staff.
