we arrived late & with great expectations, but rooms dark & cheaply decorated. Breakfast was meagre and our hosts were rather abrupt and not welcoming especially when we asked for a table for 7 as we were a large family groupi.even a request for poached eggs was refused! I would not recommend this place as there are much nicer ones and kinder hosts  for sure.the best thing about this place was the pool area.

Good welcome, great dogs, very clean and well maintained. Cooked breakfast sparse, plenty of toast and cereal plus coffee.
