Sheer luxury

Herefordshire, United Kingdom

I can't rate this resort enough. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend it. The staff were fantastic, always happy, pleased to see you and willing to help. They kept the grounds immaculate and were constantly sweeping and pruning to keep it tidy. The rooms were of a good size (we just had 3 standard rooms) with tea/coffee facilities and always a good supply of bottled water. I really miss those monkeys now I am home, they were so entertaining, loved watching them. The bush babies in the restaurant too! The food was great, we always ate at the restaurant by reception but i believe the other 2 served the same food. Great selection of salad dishes, curry's, fish, pasta cooked to order and a selection of grilled meats with sauces. The desserts were also delicious and plentiful. The staff decorated the restaurant a different theme every day and one evening they had even transformed it into a jungle with real trees and straw on the floor; absolutely delightful, they made so much effort. Good selection of cocktails at the bar (try the Dawa for a lovely fresh lime bite!).The resort was quite quiet when we went (early June) which was great for us. I would love to stay here again and would certainly recommend it. PS. don't worry too much about the beach boys, they are harmless even though a little annoying but after a few days of seeing you they don't bother you.
