Staff in all areas extremely efficient, helpful and friendly. Accommodation very clean. Dining room was over crowded on our first night, tables were on top of one another but other 2 nights were much better. Squash courts definitely need some attention. A suggestion that maybe there could be more information provided about the hikes in the area. Overall thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return and recommend it to others.
