Friendly staff on arrival immediately put us at ease. The room was spacious and clean, with a large en suite and with all facilities in good working order. We only had breakfast there one morning but it was lovely (full fry) and they managed the covid restrictions well with staff manning the buffet areas - they weren't judgemental if you returned for seconds either! There is a lot of parking available but it's a bit confusing to navigate around outside the hotel with various areas leading to different lodges and car parks. The first car park actually leads directly to the swimming pool and spa area which we didn't realise was a quicker way to our room until the final day.

Wouldn't stay again
Room was dusty, was as if room hadn't been cleaned in a while with a layer of dust on bedside tables and desks also with dust particles in the air. Also the bathroom floor was dirty. There was no aircon or fan in the room and as it was very warm out while we were staying made it very unpleasant.

Mattress replacement and dodgy shower.
The room was satisfactory. Clean but with regard to Covid no reassurance was given on how the room was cleaned. Only consideration was hand sanitiser provided in lobby and a sign in room about how keep numbers down for breakfast in the restaurant. We declined breakfast due to numbers staying. The shower function needs to be replaced as it took me 10 mins to change it from bath to shower mode, as the lever part was loose and worked when it fell off. The mattress was old and we had to turn it around to get comfortable. Definitely needs to be replaced. The receptionist was warm and welcoming but management need to to fix these issues.

Poor service from arrival to departure. Dirty bedrooms. Power cut which was unavoidable but still charged for breakfast that didn’t arrive. Sort your operations out.
