Entertainment was very good and the Lady calling the Bingo was so clear and precise. On the free day we had... More

It's an annual weekend outing and the first time we've been here. All checked in OK, albeit a few rooms were not ready, but we were all catered for in the cabaret room bar. The hotel is very tired and suffering from a fair bit of neglect to external fittings etc. Restaurant is OK, although drinks there are rather expensive... More

Just got back from a 4 night stay with National Holidays. Really enjoyed it, the room was good for its age, the staff were all friendly, the entertainment was good, and the food was a very high standard - especially the evening meals. We would go again.

The staff couldn't do enough to help me and my husband during our stay. They were warm and welcoming and very pleasant. Which made our stay all the more enjoyable. Food was excellent. We would consider staying at the rainbow international hotel again in the future
