Customer Reviews

Pauline R

Reviewed

This is a stunning hotel in a beautiful setting with spectacular views down to the sea. We loved the fact that we were so close to the animal enclosures as they made their presence felt with their noises. The tour around the animal park was just amazing and it was clear that the staff loved the animals they were being trusted to care for. The best part for me was the fact that the staff all treated each other well, treated the patrons well and the whole ethos of the place was kindness. If you want to give someone you love, who is an animal lover, a real treat this is a very special place.
