Nice hotel, good food, rooms not very big, coach driver left a lot to be desired! There was a good choice of food, room 8 as always was adequate, bathroom or maybe it was a converted cupboard was rather small, under our tea making cupboard was rather dirty underneath on the wall, see picture. Entertainment was very good especially Lee, give him a rise , he was so funny. One of the workers was called Garath another one that deserves a rise, always smiling & helpful good luck to him. WE had a man next door at no 6 that liked to wake us up at 6.30 am & various other times with the TV turned up full, he wasn't even deaf! He is a regular there so beware! A holiday is only as good as the coach driver. Our coach driver was Denis, our full day excursion lasted from 9.30 to 3pm as he had to get the train home to Exeter, the other coach was out before us & back at 5pm! You had the distinct feeling all the folk on the coach were an inconvenience, no trip anywhere lasted more than 1 1/2 hours. It is too be hoped that we NEVER get him again.
