Just arrived home from a 3 night stay at The Patricia...fantastic!! I am a single parent travelling with a 6yr old boy. Check-in was swift and smooth (pay by cash or card), Roy offered to help with our luggage. We were shown to our room (ground floor). It was inviting, spotlessly clean, with extra little toiletries in bathroom. We were given guidance concerning breakfast arrangements, clean towels, tv and alarm clock. There were tea/coffee making facilities with biscuits which my little boy immediately devoured!! I was shown which keys were which and told to come and go as we pleased. Breakfast was fantastic!! My little boy ate and was treated, like a prince! He was that impressed he gave Kathy a well deserved 2000 out of 10 for her beautiful breakfast!! Roy was attentive and you could have as much or as little as you wished, from a wide choice of menu..we plumped for juice, cereal, full english, toast, coffee and milk!! Set us up for the day, it was served promptly and hot..most important. The establishment throughout was exceptionally clean. I was grateful that Roy and Kath were able to move breakfast to an earlier slot just for us on the Saturday, as we had an early wedding to attend where my little boy was page boy. This was accomodated with no quibble and they made a lovely fuss of my little man in his suit!! Also, when I booked I asked if there was any availability of parking, which they kindly reserved a space at the back of their hotel for us...this saved trying to carry or walk a very tired liitle boy too far late at night!! The location is just right, 5 mins to town and less to the beach, just enough to walk our breakfast off before starting the day!! Roy was extremely helpful with directions and gave us a booklet containing discount vouchers for the many attractions around and about..on a tight budget this was extremely helpful! Nothing was too much trouble, even down to altering the alarm clock and resetting the time due to the hour going back!
Roy and Kath...thankyou so much for a wonderful few days...when we come your way again (which my little boy informs me will be soon!), we will definitely wish to stop with you again. Sian & TJ
