    Unprofessional/Untrained Staff

    Bar Staff incredibly unprofessional. I don't mind inexperienced staff (we all start that way regardless of our role), but unsupervised, untrained and unfriendly staff isn't sufficient.

    Perfect getaway!

    Lovely property, the check-in/out was easy and the property is well kept. We had a girls getaway and this place was perfect The Spa was awesome (the only complaint is the massages were more like a rub down - needed more pressure) but otherwise was lovely! The surrounding area was also lovely, for a stroll. The staff was also wonderful.
