How amazing that even the security guy is so welcoming. Such an awesome treatment and beautiful gardens. Well located in a quiet neighbourhood. A night in such an environment was priceless. Talk about sleeping like a baby.

Very enjoyable stay for all of us, friendly staff and nice rooms. We were out most evenings so could not experience the dinner service which was a pity considering breakfast was always enjoyable. Would definitely stay again when next travelling to the area.
