Location and surroundings beautiful. Reception staff friendly and efficient. Can't comment on the food as we didn't use the restaurant. Nice lounge area to sit in with puzzles and games. The pool was gorgeous. The room - smaller than we're used to in hotels and yes it does look a bit dated but that's probably party by design to keep the country retreat character of the place. It could have been a bit cleaner - the coffee maker was actually dusty as were the window blinds. Not gross or disgusting , just not to a high standard. Main issue we had was with the air con - although there is a 'control' unit on the wall you could only turn it up or down, not off which is what we wanted. We did ask for help with it at reception and a very nice chap came and looked at it for us but ultimately was just as clueless as us as to how to stop it coming on and off (VERY loudly) every 10 minutes or so. I wouldn't go as far as to say avoid it but don't set your expectations too high. I thought it was 'ok' but my husband who booked it was rather disappointed with it. I expect most people who stay here choose it for the fabulous location, not the rooms themselves. We didn't have an opportunity to explore the park more than briefly but what we saw was lovely.It's now $9.00 to enter the park but you only pay that on first entry - if you show your room key you don't have to pay each time you go in.
