Arrived Friday evening, keys given out for our rooms as quickly as possible.I had a single on first floor which was very clean , white towels( changed daily if needed ) & bedding etc .flat screen T V, hospitality tray for coffee & tea making.Only quibble the room was very hot as central heating on full blast.My window was open but still too hot for me but after I mentioned it to the reception staff someone came up & fiddled with the landing controls,turning it down, saying he would return in half hour to make sure it was going off,It was still on on my room when another member of staff came to check so they both returned & made sure the heating was off in my room! They couldn't have been more helpful.Meals were at set times but was no problem as the majority of clients were with tour coaches & on strict time schedules.The serving staff did wonders to get everyone fed within the time slot as the dining rooms were full capacity! No waiting around as no sooner had you placed your order , than it appeared at the table! Evening meal ordered at breakfast time which made sense as no wasted food!On the whole food was fine considering the price of the coach tour?I even had partridge one night which is generally only served in upper market restaurants!The fish on other 2 evenings was lovely.Evening entertainment I went to was your average singer/musician but adequate.The coach tour of IOW was excellent on the Sunday taking us out & about from 9-30am until 4-30 pm & as the weather was perfect it added to the pleasure.
I would certainly recommend this holiday but remember you only get what you pay for so don't expect 5 star treatment from a 2 star payment!
