When we arrived and saw how large the hotel was out head dropped as we tend to find the bigger the hotel the less pleasant the experience. How wrong we were .... from the check-in lady, to the bar staff and the staff at breakfast all the members of staff we encountered were friendly and helpful (incidentally all the ones... More

A very enjoyable weekend spent in an old childhood favourite hotel. Outdoor pool was lovely and warm, clean with plenty of loungers. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and the food was well presented and tasty. Only a couple of draw backs....limited parking at the front of the hotel and not all sea view rooms have a clear view of... More

It has an outdoor swimming pool which was lovely and warm even though it is was the third week in September. There is an outdoor hot tub also. Breakfast and dinner... More

Stayed in the west wing of the hotel for a function. The first night at the meal, food was delicious but we couldn't understand what the waiters were saying. The room, the carpet was stained, the bathroom was clean but old and the toilet was placed so that you had to have short legs to use ( fiance is over... More

What a delightful find. The hotel is nicely situated overlooking the ocean. The staff are so welcoming. The restaurant delicious and the pools / leisure facilities delightful - the outdoor pool has to be the warmest most inviting pool I have ever been in. Not to mention the hot tub. I didn't use the gum but did notice an array... More

We stayed Monday 1st to Wednesday 3rd September 2014. A really pleasant hotel, very roomy in all areas, have never stayed in a hotel room so large, no shortage of space. Plenty of pleasant attentive staff, restaurant food was really nice, great buffet breakfast. Plenty of facilities for families, even very young catered for. Very secluded gardens not overlooked by...
