We stayed in the family room for 7 nights back in August and really enjoyed our stay. Whilst the hotel 'rule book' waiting in our room was a bit daunting, the reality was that Gary and Ann were extremely welcoming hosts, always ready to have a chat or give advice about the area, and the atmosphere was friendly and charming throughout our stay.
Breakfast was great, the bed was comfortable, walking distance to the beach, and with a bit of help from Google maps, we could easily walk to/from the town centre, meaning we could leave the car at the hotel when going out for a meal. What more could you ask?
The hotel is situated on a fairly busy road, so as our bedroom faced the road, you could hear the traffic, but it wasn't loud enough to keep us awake at night. Other very minor gripes would be that the en suite toilet wasn't 100% spotless when we arrived (I'm a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to things like that), and the parking was a bit snug when the hotel was full. All in all though, very glad we chose the Brandize and we are seriously considering coming back again in 2012.
p.s. Thanks for the loan of the buckets and spades :-)
