We have just been back for our second holiday at the hotel - this time for 12 days with both sets of grandparents and our three children 5, 3 and 2. We had a super time - lovely rooms in the West Wing with plenty of space for us and for the children to have their toys. The food was good with very generous portions for the adults evening meal. There was a good choice of sandwiches (or chips !) for lunch at the hotel.
Lots of space in the garden for the children to run around in and play on the big climbing frame, slides and sandpit. Several trips down through the woods to the sea where there was sand and rock pools at low tide. The soft play area and swimming pool were used by us on most days and also really enjoyed by the children who did not want to go home. They also enjoyed the magic show and falconry display which were laid on on a few evenings after the childrens' tea.
The facilities of having adjoining rooms and baby listening were really good and John the owner or his substitute did a great job monitoring the children in the evening while we were having our meal and they were watching a DVD. One set of grandparents needed a room change to be on the ground floor and this was all excellently accommodated with some trouble being taken to allow different rooms to be viewed and to move beds round when we arrived to let this happen. There were several other sets of grandparents with the whole family there while we were there and it is well set up for this.
It was a very relaxing break as the children are very well catered for with there being no additional payment required to use any of the facilities as much as you want to. We all really enjoyed it and shall definitely be back again for another stay.
