“week end away”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

What a wonderful welcome from Tim and his lovely wife Sarah after a 3 hour drive it was so nice to be welcomed with "would you like a cup of tea?". We were made to feel at home right away. The location is perfect for walking to town and being far enough out to not be bothered by revelers late at night. Thanks to Tim and Sarah we had a wonderful relaxing weekend home from home, few nights away.

My stay in The Parks was delightful. Tim and Sarah were so welcoming and helpful, making it a fun stay with a quiz. The rooms were a perfect size, clean and nicely decorated. The location was a great benefit to our stay as it was only short beautiful walk to the beach and shops. The breakfast was delicious, especially the full english on the Sunday! Made my day! I would definitely go back and stay. Thank you Tim and Sarah. Clemency.

I had a fantastic stay at the Parks. This was my second time visiting here and it was even better than remembered. Tim and Sarah are incredibly welcoming and happy to help with any request. The rooms are lovely and spacious and the accommodation as a whole has such a warm homely feel to it. Fantastic location and a great stay, thank you!

Had a lovely weekend in the Parks Hotel. The owners were extremely helpful and were very helpful when asked questions about the area. Perfect location for the beach. Nothing was too much trouble. Would certainly recommend. Thank you Tim and Sarah.

We visited the Parks for three nights, the duration of our stay was warm and enjoyable. We were greeted in a friendly manner, it was almost as if we already knew Tim and Sarah. The room was clean, comfortable and cozy. Although we did not book to have breakfast, we had it in on the last morning and it was not a problem at all, everything was cooked well and served in a very timely manner. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend the Parks to anyone, and will definitely return to stay myself. Faultless hosts, beautifully kept accommodation and worth every penny! Erin and Shane.

Just spent three days at The Parks, my birthday celebration......Brilliant! Tim and Sarah are so friendly and welcoming, we took the hotel over, about 30 of us altogether attended the party. Tim and Sarah arranged Chinese and Indian food for the evening, and also did a quiz, which everyone really enjoyed. As usual the breakfast at The Parks is a bit special....full English on Saturday and a buffet on Sunday, everyone was very pleased with the food and the accommodation.....first class. Some of the guests had not stayed at The Parks before, but they are already talking about staying for another a weekend next year. Well done Tim and Sarah, thank you so much for an unforgettable weekend, Trevor and Sue.

Room Tip: Go and enjoy yourselves.......you'll love it!
