On the basis of previous Newmarket Holidays, we had hoped to expect a reasonable standard of accommodation but as we were the first users of this tour, we can only assume this hotel had not been inspected. The general fabric of the hotel was decidedly tatty. Decoration was poor, carpeted areas were holed and unlevel and paintwork needs renewal. The... More

Stayed here on a five day break. What a let down for Newmarket Holidays.The housekeeping skills were non-existent. Our double bed was two 3' pushed together (fine) but why did they insist on the use of a 4'6" duvet with the ripped/worn out cover? Our view from the 2nd floor was quite amazing across the bay BUT was so let... More

My wife and i arrived at the hotel and were greeted by a friendly receptionist. We enquired about parking as the small car park was full of either cars or traffic cones reserving places. We could, if we'd known, have reserved a parking place but a 4-day pass to park on the road outside the hotel was only £6 so... More

Booked through laterooms and a rather rude man on reception had some trouble finding the booking - he was quite unpleasant about it. We left him to it and returned 15 mins later to find a lovely lady in his place who was much more pleasant. The room was big but not in the best condition - a bit tatty... More
