Hotel in good location and staff very helpful. Had the bar food on both nights we stayed and it wasn't nice. Don't get the scampi it's like something you would get out of a packet in a supermarket! And plus the drink too expensive

Stayed for 2 nights to attend a wedding. Had no issues throughout, no complaints with the room or the service. All staff I dealt with there were helpful and attentive. Activities for the children and the free play area next door were great to have. Pool is small but serves its purpose. food was enjoyable also.

Every thing was nice.rooms could do with air conditioning and check in could be earlier. I personally wouldn't go back it's a bit out of the way from the town and the reception seemed swapped. The dome is handy beside if you have kids and a deep wallet.
