The hotel, which comprises four separate main buildings organised loosely into a quadrangle at the centre of which is one of the swimming pools, occupies a large piece of land surrounded by green fields. The buildings are a mish mash of styles with some in wood, others in brick and the remainder with typical Norman timbers. The entrance to the hotel is through one of the smaller buildings, flanked by carefully snipped trees. The lobby, reflecting the rest of the hotel, is a little dated but could also been seen as rather charming, depending on your point of view. The long reception desk bends off round to the left while to the right is a seating area with some pretty chunky green armchairs and sofas organised around an old wooden coffee table placed on an oriental rug. There are a good number of green plants dotted around the space as well as lamps on period sideboards and the odd horseshoe nailed to the wooden beams.
Just outside is the smaller of the two swimming pools at the hotel (although still quite sizeable), the one found right in the middle of the complex. Surrounded by a protective perspex wall, there are also rows of tables and chairs by the poolside as well as a few palms. With great exposure to the sun and the bar a few feet away this is a great spot to spend relaxing during sunny days, drink in hand. Alternatively, you could go for the larger pool at the side of the hotel which is surrounded by a sloping lawn on which are laid out sun loungers and parasols under the trees. The hotel also offers other leisure facilities such as a simple massage room which can accommodate a couple, a basic gym with a few cardio machines, an indoor pool with a jacuzzi, a hammam, sauna and a sensation shower. These wellness facilities are fairly basic although they certainly give the hotel one up on some of the other properties in town. The hotel also boasts two tennis courts and you can rent rackets and balls at reception.
The hotel's public spaces are on the whole clean and well maintained, if not a little dated and tired. In some of the buildings the staircases are extremely steep and those with reduced mobility may have trouble negotiating them, let alone lugging their bags up them. The main building's corridors are wider than the rest and are also better decorated. The other advantage of this part of the hotel is that there is a lift on one side. If you are arriving by car then you'll be pleased to know that there are around 65 free parking spots in front of the hotel. There is complimentary wifi throughout the hotel.
