    We had a welcome couple of days rest in beautiful surroundings. Our rooms were very comfortable, the staff quietly attentive and the meals excellent. Plus a couple of boat trips including the fish eagle trip all added to a memorable short stay.

    Hi, I am staying here in November and just wondering, although our accommodation is already paid for, can we pay for extras with visa credit card or is it best to bring cash and if so which currency is best? Also, are towels for swimming and bathroom supplied?! Thanks Sue
