Stayed here in August for a family holiday with my parents. The facilities are really good, the outdoor pool which I think is fairly new is really lovely and a bit of a sun trap. The indoor pool, sauna, steam room and spa were all immaculate and very relaxing.
There is a golf course in front of the building which my children loved. We surfed every day and there is surf board storage available for a small deposit.
The gardens are immaculate.
Our room was nice but lacking on storage space, no drawers whatsoever in the childrens room which meant we had to use the window sills to stack all their clothes up which was always a mess and not very relaxing. There was a disused door in their room which could easily have taken a chest of drawers in front of it. On the plus side we had a very spacious bathroom which we hung our wetsuits to dry every night without them getting in the way.
The brasserie is really good for an evening meal. We ate once in the main restaurant (Doyles) but found it to be very stuffy and we did not go back. The food was good though.
The best part was breakfast which was a delight every day. They do homemade pancakes which the children loved.
Would definitely recommend eating at The Boardwalk which overlooks Woolacombe Bay. The mussels were to die for!
Tip: Take lots of coat hangers!
