We travelled as a coach party of 50. The check in was pretty quick, the staff very helpful at reception. The place was very clean and rooms very comfortable. Meal time , Oh dear what a shambles. The whole dinning set up was atrocious, the meals were buffet style with small plates on which you couldn't get a lot on. Two young lads serving, no way they could cope (not their fault) they were under a lot of pressure. Some of the party had to wait for chips/wedges to be brought out after the first lot had run out, that took about 25 mins. In the mean time the ones that had eaten their meal were served with a choice of fresh fruit or black forest gateau.. again we had to wait some 15-20mins for the fresh cream to be brought out. The food consisted of chilli con carne or chicken casserole with rice, wedges, vegatables and was not too bad considering the price of the holiday. In the morning i don't think there could be many complaints about the breakfast. Plenty of everything and it was a help yourself operation. The only observation was were the toaster was placed, it was holding the queue up. Apart from that breakfast serving was okay. The place is somewhere good to stay but management need to plan a different way to serve the meals to a large group, provide better plates and employ more staff. When these points are sorted out then it would be an ideal place for any one to stay and i would recommend it.
