What a fab time we had! Christmas decorations and ambience were brilliant, mince pie and sherry on arrival, everyone friendly and enjoying the festive atmosphere.
Three of us travelled by car but had frequent chats with coach party from Birmingham. Entertainment was varied, Ray, the 'country' chap was brilliant, but all performers got us dancing. Food was as good as we've had in this sort of hotel,plenty of choice at breakfast and always re-fills if required. Our room (twin) was newly refurbished, spotlessly clean and good view over the green out to sea. Our friend's single, although at the back of the hotel, was a good size and had a decent shower. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, even joining in with the fancy dress on the last night, and because of the friendliness of all the staff we will definitely be returning in the future.

Room Tip: Balcony and sea view

On arrival our luggage was taken to room whilst we enjoyed a tea/coffee, mince pie and sherry. We had a twin room with a balcony and sea view. Plenty of drawers and wardrobe space. Comfy beds. Soap dispensers in the bathroom and in the shower. Hairdryer in one of the drawers. Room was clean and tidy. Food was very good with plenty to eat. On "Christmas day" Santa paid a visit with a gifts for everyone. The most surprising thing were the Christmas decorations. They were fantastic and no wonder the hotel closes for a week to do them. They were better than the ones seen in stores. Would definitely go again.

Just return from a three day break Turkey & Tinsel 15th November-18th...on arrival nice warm welcome,greeted with a glass of sherry and a mince pie, nice start, then we were taken to our room, it was clean and tidy a little outdated but we were only staying three days so though OK, then is started going wrong, no where to put my creams, no mirror, no shelving and this was just the bedroom, so tried the shower room no shelving, just one very little one to hold your toothpaste ect and this was over the toilet, so had to work from my vanity case all through my stay very awkward not good for us ladies, the main window in our bedroom was very, very dirty so it spoil looking at the views looking from our window, the entertainment for the three nights was very average in fact i go as fare as to say poor...three different artists and not one could sing all used backing track so very limited, breakfast was good but the evening meals again poor Christmas meal was very average no Christmas pudding had to ask for extra gravy little things that make your meal, on what we called the boxing day 75% of our party had to return the potatoes (rock hard)...i was shocked that on the Sunday our room was not cleaned or our towels changed they were left in the same position in side the shower for them to be changed this was with all of us bed was just pulled to-gather this happen to all on in our group...i believe its a family run hotel but one girl who i am told it a daughter served behind the bar on our last night with her husband this lady could do with a customer care course, rude and not very help full, could do with been a littler nicer to the customers again this was 75% of our group who commented on this, the morning of our departure we were knocked up early to get out of our room (not a problem) but if they were as kind as getting access to the rooms for cleaning and changing the beds then that would have been great...i do believe our party of 40 plus have been asked if we would return again on another Turkey and tinsel..100% said yes but 50-60% said only if it was a different hotel...my friends and I wont be returning to this hotel unless things changed.

Excellent weekend stay at this hotel. We had a room with balcony and sea view which was lovely. Food very good. Entertainment especially on Friday night was fabulous and had us all up dancing.
Finally a word about the staff - they were all amazing - nothing too much trouble. We have already booked to go again next year.

Room Tip: most rooms at front of hotel have balconies
