This was only our third break with National Holidays so the hotel wasn't a surpise unlike the first one last year. The hotel which we were told had had millions spent on it, where I'm not sure. It was clean apart from the rusty iron window frames, not much you could do with those apart from take them out. The ceiling looked like someone had been walking over it wearing stiletto heels. No I'm not drunk. There wasn't any heating in the room but the bathroom was kept warm with the heated towel rail.
The meals were fine, didn't really have much contact with the staff apart from Sam our waiter. What a refreshing change to be able to talk to someone so young, who has a sence of humour, although rushed he had time to laugh and joke with everyone. If anyone from the hotel reads this look after Sam, he's somone who will always send guests away happy, loved him.
My complaint now is nothing to do with the hotel but our coach driver, anything you can think of that a driver shouldn't do he did it. We were sat on the front seats on the nearside of the coach so could see everything he was doing. It was so bad I wrote to National Holidays telling them that we would not take any more coach trips with them. It would take too long to list everything enough to say he was dangerous and should be taken off the road. Now before you all say how would we know, are we coach drivers, then no we aren't, we're driving instructors and consequently do know a little of what you should and shouldn't do on the road.
