Excellent conference venue, delicious and affordable buffet at the restaurant, inviting swimming pools to relax after a day of hard work and a sense of being in the nature. I heard a lion in the morning.

The Golf course is great, had great fun. The prices for beverages is just extremely expensive. This will be a definite decision maker in visiting the course again

This hotel holds a special place in our lives. We have been coming here for 16+ years. The location is great and there are enough activities on-site to do to keep you busy. BUT Strongly suggest that you check in advance if there will be any weddings or parties at the same time as your stay because the disregard of the people that come there is unbelievable. To party is one thing but to go on like there is no tomorrow is crazy. But we did enjoy the one night's sleep when we had it rooms are great and the service is great

Paul and his team blew us away. What an amazing experience. The staff are all very friendly and always willing to go the extra mile. The breakfast and food at the restaurant was out of this world! We will see you again next year!

Beautiful equestrian facility. Really top notch. For the cross country track, the ground is concrete hard and not good for the horse's legs as it hurts them. I hope they will pay attention to this and rotovate their cross country track for upcoming shows. This will most likely attract more Eventing competitors.

I stayed one night as a part of business trip. This is a massive establishment, they have everything as per activities. The rooms were nice and spacious yet a bid old. Garden view was spectacular. Dinner was ok, a wider selection of food would have been nicer. There was a greasy smell at the restaurant, needs better ventilation.
