We stayed here for two nights in order to attend a wedding at Tunnels Beaches, we took two rooms both of which were a very good size and both ensuite. The rooms had everything you require but were a bit tired and the furniture was rather scuffed but they were spotlessly clean. I can't praise the staff enough, they were... More

We stayed two nights at this hotel. We could not fault the cleanliness of our room. We had nice breakfast and very good restaurant service. Our booking requests were not met and we ended up having a table at the back of the restaurant and with hardly any leg room so it was quite uncomfortable, especially as my husband is... More

Stayed for a 3 night break which was thoroughly enjoyed. Hotel is run by family. Meal times are at set times, 6.30pm for dinner, but the service was very efficient and friendly. We didn't partake of the evening entertainment in the bar, but could see that this would be very enjoyable for the coach parties which the hotel caters for.... More

Booked last minute and had no idea what the hotel would be like. Upon arrival Nick was extremely welcoming and this seemed to extend to all the staff. The hotel is dated but is spotlessly clean and our room appeared to have been recently redecorated. Breakfast was very good with a choice for everyone. Definitely value for money!
