We really enjoyed our view, and the Staff were very helpful and friendly. The Housekeepers did a great job making our room up every day. It was lovely to come back to a warm and inviting room each day. Thank you very much. I didn't like the mould in the bathroom, the marks on the bathroom floor due to the bath being moved, and cobwebs on the ceiling. Plus I decided not to have a Bath as the design of the bath caused it to have mould inside it too.....a poor design feature, not a fault of the Resort or the Housekeepers.

Set in beautiful grounds and only 12 minutes from the airport. We watched the sunset go down over the lakes and enjoyed a wonderful dinner in the restaurant. The staff are very welcoming and we would definitely stay there again.

We thought it would be quiet but nearby building work and the nearby flight path made it far from quiet.Accomodation modern roomy but a little dated.
