Really enjoyed our stay at this first class hotel. Stunning rooms and features throughout, set in beautiful gardens. Service was excellent, particularly the front of house staff, who were very friendly and helpful. The only negative was the Sandeman's "fine dining" restaurant. Food was no better than the excellent brasserie, and the service painfully slow on the tasting menu (4 courses in 3 hours, so didn't complete the remainder..). To be twice the price of the about the hotel brasserie is frankly ridiculous, though the dining room was beautiful. Other than this, everything else about the hotel was superb.

This property is set in the mist exquisite setting with stunning views. The property’s bedrooms were beautiful & very luxurious. The food was excellent although over priced for what was presented. We loved this hotel but were disappointed that we had to wait till 4:45pm (1 3/4 hours after the check in time) before we were given the keys. That said the staff in the restaurant & the concierge were so polite & obliging.
