Also we were staying from Friday to Monday and therefore avoided any bus parties and the hotel was less busy, so service was excellent. My review also is for an upgraded... More

We have been on many Shearings holidays but this one was exceptional. Our room (15) was very comfortable and the bathroom excellent. The food was great with lots of choice and the staff very helpful. We had excursions every day and our driver, Alan, was very knowledgable. We will certainly be returning to this hotel in the future.
