The facility is showing signs of age. Struggles to be value for money

Very relaxing and really connect you to nature. The amenities needed improvement. The dining options really good as resto is just within the grounds.

Walls between rooms are paper thin so you hear everything in the next room. Happened to have a couple of guys partying next door and got no sleep, would have been better trying to sleep in the car. Staff did however respond to my two late night calls and come and ask them to quiet down but even conversations could be heard from the next room. Staff good but building itself, terrible. No sleep, waste of money.

Room was clean and well equipped and our stay was pleasant but we were disappointed to find that the pool had several hundred dead bugs floating on the surface and the general pool area we found to be very unappealing. The kids were disappointed about not being able to swim and this was one of the drawing cards to this facility. Perhaps the hotel should think about a shade cover over the pool or more regular cleaning of the pool.
