2/5 Poor

Travelled with family
Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Whilst the location and the outdoor areas are stunning, the accommodation was dated, tied and shabby. The food on offer in the restaurant was disappointing, cold and mostly inedible. If I had not been at a celebration dinner I would have left, as I saw many others do.
