I stayed for 5 days with some friends, and the theme was Christmas, Turkey and Tinsel ! It was excellent. The hotel was very near the sea, and also the town for shopping,( halfway between the 2!)

This is the third hotel our group has visited for a Turkey & Tinsel weekend break and our unanimous verdict was 'Terrific!' Location, staff, food, entertainment, thoughtful touches, and a great atmosphere - which, of course, our group of 27 contributed to.
