Stayed here recently, as another reviewer said, seems to cater mainly for coaches. We were a little early for check in and the receptionist who seemed a bit grumpy, told us to come back later, which was fine, but a warm welcome would have been nice. Our next attempt had a nicer approach which was quick, friendly and efficient. Room size was a nice surprise, quite spacious, spotlessly clean crisp whit bedding (and mattress protectors on all beds) which is sometimes missing in a lot of hotels, so top marks there! Bathroom was ok, very clean and great water pressure, so good shower! Would have loved to have been able to join in the line dancing, but sadly was private function so not allowed to join in! Bingo and live entertainment in main bar which was good for those who wished to partake, we sat outside with our drinks overlooking the pretty harbour.
Breakfast was very very busy, buffet style, more than adequate, although it was very hot, windows were open, but very little ventilation. We would stay again, it was good value and location good for visiting local attractions.
