Thank you we had a good time! Everything went very smoothly (except for the two hour delay crossing the bridge, but that is beyond any-body's control) - just sorry we did not book an extra day as there simply was not enough time to enjoy all the activities. It was a lovely surprise for my husband - just unfortunate that we had a room facing the bush, but then, we didn't spend much time in it so it didn't really matter. The Kingdom is ideally placed and an excellent choice.

 

Should we have the opportunity again we will definitely be in contact! In the interim, I attach a few photos for you.

 

Kind regards
Pascale
