Wonderful hotel with spacious rooms/bathroom, lovely restaurant options (loved the dining experience in the Cove), friendly staff and excellent service. We didn’t try the spa (as it was a little pricey) but really enjoy walking in the grounds the next morning…completed a 7km circuit in pretty surrounding.
