Better yet, the spa is only for use of guests who have booked treatments, so has an air of peace and relaxation.
After pampering themselves in the spa, guests can enjoy golf, horse riding, falconry or peaceful walks in the countryside. The luxury hotel rooms boast modern facilities, while the restaurants and cafes on site provide excellent food.
