On arrival at The Parkway we were greeted by Malcolm one of the owners he was very pleasant we had booked a double room for three nights which included breakfast. As the hotel was quiet we got a family room at no extra cost! The room was spotlessly clean as was the ensuite, there was also free WiFi all you have to do is ask for the code. Breakfast is served between 8.30 and 9am and there is a good choice, the service was always faultless. On check in you get given your own key for the front door so you can come and go as you please.
Should you ever need advice on places to visit or routes around the island Debbie and Malcolm are always more than happy to help you. This hotel really was welcoming right from the start and as soon as we walked in we could smell fabric softener it didn't feel like a hotel it felt like home because it was cosy and you didn't feel like strangers on arrival but instant friends instead. The only down side this hotel had was sometimes parking was a little difficult depending on how other residents had left there cars but if done properly you can easily fit 3 to 4 cars in. Also the bar was not open which is understandable as it was quiet but when we looked at it, it didn't seem to ever be open as it was a storage area and cones off with chairs. On the plus side there was a pool table with a fridge next to it filled with cans of one brand of lager and they have an honesty box where if you take one you leave the money on the side for it. Would definitely return without a doubt.
