Very very impressed. We (family of four, with a 2 and a 5 yr old) paid not much more than we would have for a chain hotel, which would have meant all cramming into one room for the night. What we got was pretty much a house. Obviously refurbished, and whole place was immaculate. The bathrooms were the only thing not completely 'modernised' but they has still obviously had a spruce up and were also spotless.
Bedrooms - both had very thick blackout curtains - excellent for children and very rare to find in many hotels/b&bs. The rooms were spacious, with lots of cupboard space, and the beds were very comfortable (please note a bed guard for a toddler isnt much use as the mattresses are nearly as thick as the guard) One was twin and one double. Nice views from the hill. Very very quiet. Alarm clocks in both rooms.
Lots of lovely thick white towels available for use as well.
One worry was the window mid-stairs - which my toddler managed to open and very small children might squeeze throught the gap. Also the blind cord could be a hazard.
Upstairs bathroom had a shower - sadly not a very powerful or hot one, but adequate.
Downstairs bathroom has a 'spa' which is clearly the original fitting - and a bit too 'vigourous' - it scared the life out of the kids and was very very noisy - gave that a miss. A normal bath was fine! Heated towel rail very useful. Free little toiletries kit, which was nice touch (but we left it behind - I've finally grown out of collecting those things!)
The living room area was fantastic. Lovely big TV (freeview) with DVD player. Large patio area with seating (we didnt use it as it chucked down but would be great in good weather although I'd worry about the toddler trying to climb over the balcony as our apt was high up) Two sofas and a chair (quite comfy - I believe one of the sofas was a bed)
Small but immaculate kitchen including fridgefreezer, dishwasher, microwave and coffee maker (and a set of plastic toddler cup/plate/bowls). Fully equipped with good quality crockery and pans. Found everything we needed.
Dining table was great for a rare family sit-down meal. Drying clothes rail available as well as an iron and board. I think they had games and books at reception you could borrow too.
We used the pool the next morning (check out is 10am, but you can use the facilities till noon) Spotless changing areas, and my toddler could stand up in the shallow bit of the pool. He was quite upset he wasnt allowed in the jaccusi though!
You can actually walk into town from the country club although we didnt. The ladies in reception were lovely, and extremely helpful (I left my phone in the apt after check out - the housekeeper found it within 5 minutes and it was returned to me after we came in to use the pool). I can't comment on the restaurant as we had no need for it.
I wish we could have stayed for longer but we only had one night. If only all short breaks were like this!
