Nothing was too much of a problem. Staff were fantastic.

The manager was especially helpful. When we arrived there was no hot water in the downstairs. So he obligingly let 4 of our group move to 2 other cottages for the night. The room service food was exceptional. Breakfast was delicious, prompt and served by delightful waitstaff. the security guard was helpful and pleasant.
