The health club was great and we made the most of both indoor and... More

Really ideal for our extended family holiday booked at short notice but they still found us three rooms alongside each other overlooking the pool. Breakfasts were excellent and we enjoyed a very good evening meal. All staff very friendly and kids club was well organised.

Good facilities and will organised. A busy hotel that does things properly. The beds were comfy and room and bathroom clean. It was nice to use the outside pool, would have liked it to be open earlier so we could get on our way but warm and clean.
