The Hotel was very nicely decorated for Christmas, but the single lift proved rather inadequate. The Manager and Staff were very helpful and polite. Food was generally good, but Breakfast on the last day was a fiasco.

Room was mediocre,Food was good but service poor, tried to to cram to many people in the available accommodation,too many bedrooms warren style not adequately sound proofed showering is difficult due to water demand greater than supply ours was a dribble.Dining room tables too small and cramped hence the poor restaurant service,

It needs updating in décor, and showers. Food is excellent , and staff most helpful. This was a Turkey and Tinsel midweek break and good value for money. Easy access to town, and beach. Easy access for disabled users.

The food was good but the service very hit and miss, we had to keep asking for the table to... More
