In 9 months they have achieved much. The hotel offers comfortable rooms at a reasonable price, excellent service, and good food. Up the winding drive surrounded by tall trees, the broad terraces surrounding the hotel and the fine views offer a tranquil setting to relax in. At the time of writing the hotel was preparing a lavish wedding reception for over 200 guests. I am sure they will continue to prosper and we wish them every success. More...
