“Not wheelchair friendly.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Stayed 2 nights in this "Hotel"
The lift was not big enough for a standard wheelchair and we were put on the top floor. The room was ok but the shower had as much water pressure as a puddle and there was no way we could get our son any were near it.very very poor.
Location was fantastic but that's where the plusses stop. I would rather stay in a tent next time.

Just had a nice stay at the Charnwood the place is nice and clean the staff are nice and friendly,

As a vegetarians I struggled with evening meal broccoli bake was ok veg lasagne wasn't very nice bland and I saw no veg, although I had salad on the last night it was very nice wish I had seen. It on the menu before.
Breakfast was standard cereal, grapefruit juice, there was no alternative for a cooked breakfast, for vegatarians I had toms eggs and fried bread, the fried bread was yummy some of the best I have had.

The owners were a nice couple who made the stay more enjoyable with their banter
I was there as part of a coach trip and a very nice touch was the staff waved us goodbye as we left

Stayed at this Hotel with a coach trip booked through Justgoholidays. Didn't have any preconceived ideas so was amazingly surprised. We loved the room, the fantastic food, all home cooked and fresh veg. daily. Fantastic. Very homely and friendly, the staff were great, a cosy lounge and a lovely bar with small dance floor and entertainment each night. Close to the sea front. What more could a person want. Can't wait to go back. Thank you Charnwood I will always remember this fantastic weekend.

The trip to this hotel with `GO` Holidays was great. Unfortunately the hotel was cold throughout on arrival, I suspected we were the first guests of the season which may have been the reason, Several guests complained of no hot water, the electric shower in our room could not be made to work and one had to do without. On the other hand the food was great and served by excellent staff. They know how to serve vegetables!

Room Tip: Avoid room 6
