We checked in, and straight out, of another hotel. Tried Tommy Jacks for availability and were instantly relieved!
We were in room 201, a great family room, with a set of bunk beds in a separate room. Nice bath and shower, although watch out for slope above the bath! No sea view from room but great space. Ok, as someone said, there is the old style woodchip wallpaper painted, but it is painted white, clean and bright. Double bed in main room is comfy and bunk beds were nice. Usual tea and coffee faculties but also hot chocolate and water which was great. Wifi could be little temperamental and signal not great in room, but that's if you're looking for faults.
We ate in sea jacks and the staff were excellent with a lively 2 year old. The bar was great and welcoming, aquariums and cocktail (&mocktail) slushies! Perfect for the weather.
Public areas had nice decoration, even little extras above stairs, such as a kite or wooden sea gulls, great for exploring (or getting lost in!). All of the staff couldn't do enough to help and really made it a pleasure to stay.
Outside parking is limited, but there is large beach front car park, although at a cost. There was great grass seating and kids bouncy castle. Perfect to wear them out a bit. The hotel felt family friendly but without alienating those without the monsters. Great mix!
Would love to return, didn't want to leave!!
Perhaps few more signs within hotel, guiding those with direction issues back to reception!! But hey, on holiday who is in a rush?
