Mr. Richard Cox (15/09/2018)

"A real star! A bit of a pain to get to however well worth it as once through the doors a real haven of peace. The room was very comfortable and sitting by the pool in the afternoon very relaxing. The meal was good (no choice) in very elegant surroundings. A lovely end to our holiday before setting off home"
