A lovely, comfortable country hotel with welcoming staff. Owner is personally on hand at arrival and in the Restaurant. The food is gourmet and superb! Take a few days to enjoy the area and the Lodge.

A beautiful building with annexes set in a majestic landscape, adjacent to a golf course for those who are interested. We were more interested in the calm and relaxing environment and in the professional spa located in the premises. We were happily surprised to discovered that we had been upgraded due to the fact that my Mom could not easily climb stairs. Our room, with an inside and outside sitting areas, was classy and comfortable. The very large bathroom offered all amenities and even more than necessary, from toiletries to bathrobe. Storing space was plenty. The bar was full, be it in the fridge or outside. A courtesy tray offered tea and coffee. The back door of the room opened directly on the pool. The very large restaurant was nicely decorated for Christmas. Here again, we could choose to sit inside or on the surrounding terrace. The breakfast was served at the table but offered a wide variety of options. The lunch and dinner menu is that of the Oliver's restaurant, famous for its gastronomy. We particularly loved the Spa, were we enjoyed 4 treatments and appreciated the professionalism of the staff. Another delight was the garden: so many varieties of plants and flowers and so well maintained by a team whom we saw busy from dawn to dusk. All staff were extremely professional and efficient. One regret: that the owner, living on the premises and crossing occasionally her guests, does not find it relevant to introduce herself or inquire about their stay.

This is the place to relax and although it looks like a bit of a bigger hotel, the service is extraordinary personal. If you like golf, you can play the 18 holes directly in front of the lodge, but they also have good contacts with the golf courses in the area in case you like to change the setting.
Our very comfortable room had a direct entrance to the pool but still a very private terrace.
The restaurant is outstanding, whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner, quality and taste are excellent.

I absolutely loved my second visit to them. From the guard at the gate through reception and the restaurant staff, they all are extremely friendly and client-centric. The lodge’s stunning location make it a tranquil experience with a nice walk possible around the surrounding estate and forests. Restaurant staff do go out of their way!
