    If Tripadvisor allowed you to give 6 stars, then I'd award them to Gooding's. From the moment you arrive, you feel like you're special friends of Malcolm Gooding and his wife. You are made to feel so welcome, greeted with complimentary olives, olive marmalade, wine,...More

    The view of the gardens and the mountains from our patio was the best view we had on the whole holiday. I could have sat there for hours drinking it all in. The inside of the room was very nice too: large, spacious and airy....More

    Very charming, friendly and dedicated owners who know how to excite guests. We felt very comfortable at Goodings Grove and appreciate coming back one time in the future - one night was definitely too short!
