I have been reading this forum diligently for the past 4 months since we booked our holiday and am very excited. I love all the stories, advice and anecdotes you have all provided - thank you!! We are booked into the Crystal Palace studios (after much studying of options, prices and reviews this was by far the best option for the two of us!)
I have a general question about Skala however. We seem to be booked on the first flight of the season out of Manchester, and I noticed some hotels had no availability in early May - I am guessing this is because they open a little bit later in the year than the Crystal Palace. Because it is early in the season, will there be places open to eat / visit / see / do? My concern is only one or two places will be open in the evening and the option we chose of a relatively-quiet-definately-not-british-lager-lout themed holiday will be a VERY quiet holiday.
You thoughts / comments / questions are appreciated.
