Interaction with guests
We will be there to greet you, show you around and give you your keys. We are available to help with recommendations, and attraction and restaurant bookings. Most guests prefer to be left to themselves so we try and take a back seat although you will see us around the garden and the pool in late afternoons/early evenings and we are always happy to chat and give advice on the area.
