    Only spent one night there but I really wish we could have done more. Everything about our stay was excellent and the staff were always very accomodating to our large group, even though we were very unorganised ;) It was my birthday during our stay and they really looked after us even though they only heard about it in passing. Really nice staff and location. Highly recommended!
