arrived by train,reception suggested I go to lounge relax, enjoy the view across the bay,complementary newspapers available and would call me when room was available.Nice welcome and much appreciated.My room was clean, comfortable. Dining at the hotel was enjoyable with a good choice of food at breakfast and dinner, good food and well presented. I found the restaurant staff attentive.pleasant and smart in uniform. Evenings you had a various choice of enternment in the Riviera Suite, bingo,quizzes, dancing.Games were also available which I saw guests enjoy in the lounge.The lounge was a very welcoming place to enjoy a drink and meet other guests.

Just returned home after five nights stay. The staff at this hotel are what make it so popular with clients. Have been to many Shearings hotels and the staff here beat all the others hands down. If you need anything they always try their best to sort things out. Food fine, always hot and good selection. Now trying to lose the two pounds I put on whilst there. Trips out very good with the driver givings lots of information about the area.

Ignore poor reviews it is warm, friendly and helpful and the food is fantastic. I can only assume poor reviews are from folk who eat a la carte every night and employ servants. The staff are amazing and go the extra mile-it was humbling to see how they cared for a visually disabled guest. Try it for yourself.
