Hot water was not. Maybe temporary problem. Otherwise faultless.

This little gem is really 'home from home' - we regretfully only stayed for 2 nights - would have loved to stay longer. The hospitality, outstanding facilities, delicious food and beautiful setting are all hard to beat. We will definitely be back - to take advantage of the extensive range of activities and enjoy the perfect peace.

Bright stars, fresh air, happy kids and wholesome food. Just remember to stop off before and buy your own alcohol
