Had Christmas at Crown Plaza. Room was excellent, food at Christmas Lunch was spectacular. My only criticism is that the room doors are extremely heavy, so when you have people coming in late, there is usually a very loud noise announcing the fact. Would come back.....and stay in a villa.

They are more like holiday houses, we had our own deck looking onto a beautiful lake with a huge grassed area for the children to play and feed the ducks. We had a few minor issues in the cabin, we...

Can't wait to come back here. Rooms were clean, staff very helpful, buffet breakfast had so much to offer. Kids loved the pool and couldn't get enough of it. Kids also enjoyed a game of soccer on the grounds, great idea having soccer nets! One of the loveliest places we have stayed! We will be back.

The pool was great fun for the kids, the shallow water is suitable for young kids. The buffet breakfast has lots of selection, good spread and very tasty. Staff are very friendly too. Lots of kids friendly activities.
