Beautiful greenery, very peaceful away from city noise. Service is old fashioned and won't take much for staff to receive more training and to exude warmth and friendliness.

Lovely pool
We stayed here as a little treat during our travels. The room was lovely and clean, and the pool was great. Most of the staff were really friendly apart from the 2 ladies at reception who just seemed a bit miserable and busy playing on their phones. The breakfast was also really good.. lots of choice and with new things everyday.
