This stay was as a result of a mystery holiday for Christmas with Proctors coach holidays so we didn`t know where we were heading until we got there. The hotel boasts a lovely warm swimming pool and you can hire towels for £1 if you haven`t brought your own and as I am a regular swimmer I was disappointed i hadn`t got a costume with me but i just didn`t expect our mystery hotel to have this facility. There is also a fitness suite but we didn`t see it as again, we hadn`t brought the right clothing with us to use it.
The positive points i can make about this hotel is that the rooms are large and fitted with plenty of space for storage etc, there is a lack of coat hangers but i always bring more of our own so it wasn`t a problem. Rooms were serviced daily except Christmas day but we were able to replenish stocks of anything we required from reception. All the staff seemed to be multi taskers and could be seen helping behind the bar or in the restaurant and also on reception. They were all very helpful even though some of them had not worked there very long.
The worst aspects of this hotel was that it was in the middle of nowhere so there was no shops or anything else nearby except the busy roads, so if you didn`t have transport you were confined to the hotel, and they didn`t have newspapers delivered either. Sometimes the food was not as piping hot as we would have liked and as a vegetarian, there was not much choice and what there was needed to be ordered. I was particularly disappointed that they didn`t provide vegetarian sausages as everyone else got hot bacon baps for Christmas day morning and I had to be content with the continental breakfast, but our Christmas lunch was the main meal of the day and the vegetarian option I chose was very tasty.
The reception provided a wide variety of board games so that guests can make use of spare time and there was a tv in the bar and also tv`s in all the bedrooms.
Proctors coaches provided excursions for our holiday which were very enjoyable as without them we would have felt isolated not being able to go for a walk except around the perimeter of the hotel.
