We booked it in the last minute for our first seaside holiday in late August. It is exactly what the reviews from other said! We stayed with 2 young kids 5 & 8 in a spacious room (No. 18). Although we didn't have a lovely view (It's shown on the hotel's website.), the room was spotless clean and has air-conditioning. They made our bed everyday. One day, we went back with a bucket of stone and feet were full of sand. We were sorry to leave sand on the carpet and the bath. The next day, the room was as clean as before. :-)
Staff are very friendly and helpful. They're so relaxed. They must enjoy their job there. The breakfast was fantastic. It wasn't just ordinary egg, bacon, beans (full-English) but poached haddock and grill kippers to chose. Going to seaside, it was unexpected they served fish for breakfast. Worth to try if you like fish. Lovely! The poach egg is PERFECT!
We ate a dinner in the bar one night. Food was so yummy and good portion. My daughter's fish fingers were not Bird's Eye but proper fish, homemade fish finger.
Indoor and outdoor swimming pools was a reason we chose Redcliffe. The weather was good in late Aug but we still used the pools. Lovely! Of course, the secret tunnel to the beach was awesome!
Only one regret, we didn't have time to play pool. So we will be back!
Thank you, Redcliffe.
