Arrived at 11am , parked the car next to the hotel wall in the front car park, handed in the keys and got a receipt.We had a look in the Dining Room and by chance were allowed to select our table in the front area. We went for a stroll, had some lunch and then efficiently booked in around 2pm. The room was a bit on the small side for a twin so we enquired about free rooms and were immediately offered a swap to 117 (family room) which was roomy, well furnished and included a very good Flat Screen TV. The bathroom wasn't over large but wasn't a problem. The room was cleaned each morning.
Our first trip to the Dining Room and a browse of the Menu showed an excellent selection of Starters & Mains which continued throughout our stay. The portions were very good and the quality was excellent. A selection of hot & cold sweets were offered buffet style.
Breakfasts were buffet style and you made your own portion size from continually refreshed trays of good breakfast fare.
The All Inclusive deal included a light lunch which we had twice, a soup, roll and salad with a main meal; we had shepherds pie & chicken curry.
Drinks were available throughout the day with achohol served from 11am to 12 midnight, surely enough for anyone on the All Inclusive deal!!
Various forms of entertainment are available during the day as are two coach trips to Fleetwood & Bingo, we took part in Millionaire, Pub Quiz & Darts and won a box of chocolates, a bottle of wine and 1000 Choice points.
The entertainment after the games of Bingo (good cash prizes but expensive) was two spots of 45minutes each night, there were six singers all of adequate standard and two excellent comedians. The compere/ DJ wasn't as funny as he thought he was and was very repetitive over the 4 nights, however he seemed well received by the majority.
All the staff we encountered were very pleasant and efficient and we have already booked a return visit in August.
A tip to the travellers who moan about trivial problems, report them and they get sorted. The report from the bloke from Manchester is so factually incorrect that you can disregard everything he wrote in his 'Worst Hotel' nonsense.
