    Beautiful hotel and surroundings, only stayed one night because we were on a time frame, but would definitely recommend and stay again. The drive in was very rural, but a great surprise once you arrive.

    Stayed here for two nights after a wedding elsewhere. Positives - lovely views, big rooms, nice spa, friendly reception staff. Negatives - very average breakfast and dinner, bit far from town, bar and restaurant service slow and disinterested.

    Nice walks in the summer, pool is ok but I think it would be limited enough in the winter.
