We had dinner and breakfast as paying hotel guests. We enjoyed both and found staff polite and attentive on both occasions. Food was very good and we never felt rushed.

Best to contact hotel directly as this is a large group booking and the restaurant gets booked up very quickly. I can assure you the meal will be delicious and the setting wonderful. Take time to stroll in the grounds. Top... More
Can anyone advise what kitchen facilities are in the tents i.e. fridge/stove/cutlery. Also what essentials would anyone recommend we bring?
