We enjoyed a short break here in June 14. The Hotel & rooms were very clean & well maintained. Our room was in the new wing (where the rooms have names rather than numbers). It was quite well furnished with plenty of cupboard/drawer space. Our only complaint would be the size of the ensuite which was tiny and had nowhere to put your toiletries. It also had a very squeaky sliding door! The rooms have very thin walls & we could hear the TV next door.
All the staff were welcoming & very helpful. In the evenings there was entertainment, which we enjoyed, although I couldn't tell you who was performing as none of the musicians gave their names as far as I could tell! It was definitely geared towards the older generation.
Our stay was half board. Breakfast & dinner were at set times - 8.30am and 6pm, no flexibility, which we found rather restrictive on holiday. The breakfast was ok and reasonable quality. We found the evening meals rather bland and almost all from 'frozen' produce. I guess that's the only way they can keep costs down. But they were well presented and hot. Choices for evening meals had to be made in the morning, after breakfast. The hotel has lovely grounds & a very pretty swimming pool area. The weather wasn't warm enough for us to make use of it, unfortunately.
The hotel is very convenient for the town and beach. We visited Sealife and Yesterday's World and found them both to be worth the visit. (Sealife is quite expensive unless you book the day before online). All in all we had a good time and the break was good value for money.
