Wonderful but a little remote
This hotel was amazing but is quite isolated. I believe a note should be on their website to advise that own transport is recommended. Nearest shop of any kind is over 5km away. Aside from this beautiful grounds, rooms, amenities, great restaurant and bar , breakfast superb. Staff are very helpful and friendly. I will go back but will hire a car.

Loved our stay here, wish we could have stayed longer. Only downside, is the train noise during the night.
