Positive Reviews

Good quality rooms with extras

Overall, guests have found the rooms here to be of a good quality. Cleanliness and comfort seem guaranteed, and guests have particularly liked the unique features such as the private balcony and welcome basket.

Scenic surroundings within reach of city centre

Guests give a huge thumbs up to the location of this resort, appreciating the scenic views that can be enjoyed from pretty much anywhere on the grounds. Guests who chose to visit the city centre found it was a reasonably easy drive.

Friendly and helpful service from staff

The standard of service here appears to be one of the property’s highlights. The vast majority of guests have found the attitude of the staff to be excellent, consistently describing them as friendly and helpful throughout their stay at the resort.

Negative Reviews

Cost of on-site dining can be prohibitive

While generally finding that the food available at the resort’s restaurant was good quality, the cost of dishes has proved less impressive. Guests felt that the dining set-up here lacked value and with nearby alternatives few and far between, it felt a bit like guests were taken advantage of.

Lack of maintenance can be disappointing

For a resort that generally has high standards, maintenance issues seem to crop up fairly frequently. While generally appreciative of the room quality, guests have reported problems with the in-room heaters and the Wi-Fi, as well as mentioning that the bicycles available to loan don’t seem to be well looked after.

Mosquitos are a problem

Perhaps unsurprisingly given the rural surroundings, mosquitos are said to be a problem here. Guests generally feel that more could be done to manage the situation.
