spent 5 days here with shearings hotel in nice position for shops and the harbour the hotel was clean if a little dated in places the room was small but warm and comfortable only grip with the room was the bathroom didn't have any where to put toiletries and no light over mirror or shaver point anywhere but to be fair the welcome pack did say you could get shaver plugs from reception.
the breakfast was nice and I have to say the sausage was the best I have had in any bay hotel, the evening meals were tasty and varied, the staff were friendly and helpful and the entertainment was good everyone had a good time. The only real down side was there isn't any wifi at the hotel you had to walk down the street to a cafe but at the time of year was not open. There were 2 outings included in the cost one was to the big sheep which most people were not keen on until they got there and then really enjoyed the show they put on it was educational and very funny well worth going to see, also there were extra outings but for £3.25 you could get a day rider ticket for the bus and travel all day which we did. Over all this break was well worth the money and we wouldn't hesitate going again
