"I just wanted to say what a lovely stay I had. The homemade food was well above the standard I would have expected and the relaxed and cosy atmosphere (facilities and staff included) made it so welcoming. The location is obviously outstanding, but you do more than rely on the surroundings, which is what makes all the difference. Thanks again for a great stay and I hope to see you again in the future.
