Katja made me feel at home as soon as I set foot in the yard. I got dressed for my wedding there and the service was excellent. I would recommend 5 options to anyone that is looking for value for their money. And as a bonus, the breakfast is amazing and Timothy the butler/ personal assistant is magnificent.
