        The house white wine is horrible They could not fit us in the spa from a week before - disappointing

      • Group of friends
        10.0

        The room we stayed in was very large and comfortable.

        I had booked two rooms at the same price but not the cheapest. When we arrived we were told there had been a plumbing problem with one of the rooms and our friends would now be in the lodge. We opted to move over the lodge as well and found our room to be very large and their room to be half the size. But as we were only staying one night didnt feel the need to complain.
