The segway was a present for my 17 year old son. The actual hotel was hard to find and we did get lost, but it is probably best to choose a reliable route planner, phone the hotel itself - or use a sat nav! On arrival at the venue we were amazed at what a beautiful location it was - greenery, trees, and rolling grounds...the segway reception area is at the side of the hotel and there are clearly many other activities you can do there. The chap who took my son out, Andy, could not have been more...
