Room was very comfy, the meal was delicious and breakfast was just what was needed 😀 Staff were brilliant, but would have liked the meal to have been a bit earlier. Overall great value for money and enjoyed my stay, and would come back and stay again. 🎄🎅🏻😀

The leisure pool temperature fluctuates a lot and never stays steady for long. Today it was far too cold. It would help if the temperature was publically displayed so one could decide whether or not to take the plunge
