Really super relaxing. Poor phone and WiFi were a welcome relief from constant phone interruptions. Really good food and setvice

Mixed for business.
Great estate hotel. Have stayed in the main house where the rooms are much nicer than the out buildings. The walls are paper thin in the outbuildings so you hear everything in your adjoining room. The main hotel building is excellently furnished throughout, to 5* standards. Bar staff very inefficient. Good quality food. Good free WiFi throughout hotel and outbuildings. Very, very poor mobile reception. The hotel should really install signal boosters. It's a lovely hotel and as it is competitively price would be perfect for business travellers if only the mobile reception was improved.

Can't wait to return.
Stunning hotel, with really friendly staff. The building and setting are amazing. The room was lovely and spacious with all the amenities you could need. The morning falcon display was very nice and we enjoyed the pool.

Beautiful location, shame the hotel not the same.
Beautiful part of the country. We used a private lodge. However, sadly we were not informed there is no mobile phone connection. We were invited to visit the hotel lobby & be charged for using the hotel phone. Also the lodge direct line was not working throughout our stay. Our office & business partners were unable to contact us throughout our stay. No air conditioning at all, no electric fans in heat in wave in excess of 90c!. Noisy staff vehicles stopping & starting every day, not exactly a quiet retreat. In all a great disappointment. If we hadn't had travelled so far (6 hours) we would have left the next day. The lodge was a good size, & well equipped. But the walls & floors were dirty with squashed bugs & dead flies everywhere. No broom or dustpan. The outside furniture was filthy, no cushions for the loungers or chairs, not 5 star at all.
