Although the title 'Resort' would seem to imply a complex of buildings and facilities with multiple swimming pools, to our relief this turned out to be a small country house hotel with a single very pleasant pool. There are just eight suites each decorated distinctively but with an old-world and slightly worn-out feel about them. My husband's and my rooms were a riot of pink regency stripes and chintz curtains including the canopy of the comfortable four poster bed. The bathroom was not luxurious but more than adequate in size with both bath and separate shower, plenty of space for personal toiletries and an excellent magnifying mirror. There is a conservatory restaurant where we had a couple of excellent meals and enjoyed talking with the charming waiter, who was also very good with our 6 year old grand-daughter. The gardens have well kept flower beds but the grass at the beginning of September was a bit rough and the garden furniture could do with renewal. Staff were enormously pleasant and helpful, particularly Anne Marie.
The hotel, which aspires to the luxury category, appeared to have no other guests until our party, needing three rooms, arrived unexpectedly (having rejected a hotel on the other side of the road). We enjoyed our stay there but wondered how long they could stay in business with such a low occupancy rate and having to sustain a high end restaurant. There was an air of being slightly frayed round the edges and paddling frantically under the calm surface.
