Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   I keep going back - and each time its as lovely as the last. This says it all. The staff are just delightful and I can't explain how delightful is it to be remembered from visit to visit and greeted so warmly. The food is just scrumptious and you certainly don't go hungry. The accommodations provide everything you could possibly ask for and allow for a great nights sleep.

Review:   I booked and brought my Mum down for a treatments as a surprise. We arrived and although two staff members had called in sick and they were strapped, the girls did everything and more to make sure this was the day i had hoped. We had lunch which was amazing and when I left my coat behind, they posted it back to me. I cannot speak highly enough about how flexible the staff were to help. we will definitely be back!
