First time on a Shearings coach holiday staying from 22 October and impressed with coach organisation. Hotel is OK, clean and comfortable with efficient service.
We stayed on second floor with a room at the back. Room large and with adequate storage for belongings. Comfortable bed and had good night sleeps. Room and bathroom kept very clean and tidy daily, although we would have liked one with bath and shower not bath only. A good and working digital TV (that's a change from some hotels!). Plentiful supply on the refreshment tray. Room a little tired perhaps and maybe carpet is ready to be freshened up. We did not book a beach view room as we could not see the point of paying an extra £6 per person per night when we were only likely to be in the room very early morning and in the evening when it was dark at this time of year. So - no views of the shore. We did not miss that. We could see it quite happily from the hotel front anyway.
The dining facilities are fine - reasonable variety with a daily change of menu in the evenings and service very rapid. A most helpful waiter and we had same table each day. However Hotel sticks too rigidly to meal times - 8 am sharp to 9 am and 7 pm sharp to 8.30 pm. We would have liked more flexibilty to avoid a mass of people waiting for the opening. An earlier breakfast start would have been good in our case 7.30 to 9.00. Evenings to start at 6.30. Quality of food was good and nicely presented on the whole - although just one poor one - it was difficult to find the mushrooms in a mushroom stroganoff!!
Overall not a bad experience with the hotel, bearing in mind it is a 2 star one. Good value for money with coach fare included plus two excursions and some free drinks. Happy to recommend for a low priced short break.
