A good standard of hotel but problems checking in noted as well niggles with staff and poor procedure playing golf later in the evening. Not as good as De Vere / Village resorts elsewhere in the country.

So I've travelled all around the world staying in various classes of hotels and I can't believe this isn't rated higher. It obviously beats some dingy little hotel on Blackpool front. The facilities are excellent, indoor and outdoor pool, gym with lots of classes, pub, Italian restaurant and a Starbucks. Oh and a beautiful golf course. Every staff member we... More

Myself and a friend visited the outside area on a warm sunny evening (15/7/14) for 2 lagers which both were flat at a cost of £7.40, the tables outside are... More

We booked this hotel for a short break. It was close to the sea front and far enough away to not be disturbed by the weekend revellers. I asked for two rooms close to each other and was provided with neighbouring rooms which was great. The rooms were good although really hot. A fan was provided which helped but think... More
