We booked over the internet to stay one night and park our car for a week whilst travelling on holiday from Gatwick airport.
When we arrived at the hotel we sat outside having a drink in the sun and it was very pleasant and we also booked a meal in the restaurant for the eveneing.
We had a room at the back of the hotel overlooking what appeared to be a hostel or something - not sure what it was and we thought it was going to be noisy at night as there were a few people with young children sat out and as it was a warm evening. Luckily they were gone when we returned from the hotel restaurant so we weren't disturbed.
We had a meal in the restaurant which comprised of a meze starter for one which did for both of us with some left over. The main courses were also generous in portion size and the New Zealand wine we chose was excellent - more than can be said for the house wine in the bar which was expensive and tated off. We didn't complain but perhaps should have.
We were due up at 3am to catch our flight so booked an early morning call which was provided in the form of a knock on the door rather than by the telephone - nevertheless it was on time so no complaint there.
The hotel provide a transfer service to the airport which is a very reasonable £3 each return. The minibus is a very new Mercedes and is very comfortable.
On returning home we called the hotel for our pick-up which arrived very promptly.
All the staff were all smartly dressed and polite and the service we received was provided efficiently and with a smile.
