yes thats right give it a MISS, ( i wish i had taken my camera ' ) yes we stayed there in july 2012, traveling with Parry's international coach holidays, my moan is both with Parrys and the Queensmead, first of all 2 long stops for an hour on the way down , ( not nessasary when ther's a toilet on the coach ), then the hotel , my oh my , talk about chintz, A large room i will give you that, but multi coloured to say the least, nothing matched lots of,pictures of cats on the bedroom walls ( scary ) ,now for the food, well yes you get a good breakfast, but after a couple days all you want is a small portion, but they dont do small portions, so theres sooooo much waste, and the evening meal is plentyfull ,YES the majority of it is home cooked, but when i queried my desert the waitress replied " sorry thats how they come ", ???? YES the owners are friendly, Yes theres a pool, YES the beds are comfy, but all the reception area rooms and bar have still got dusty christmas flowers in vases ( in august ) !!! if you do go there and chose to ignore my comments, take a good look around as you come down the stairs, talk about dust , Entertainment , well it was advertised most nights, but we only got 2/3. as for Parrys i expected a lot more from them ,we have been to many places with them over the years ,and this is the first time i have had to give a bad comment about their choice of hotels, come on Parrys you can do much better than this, your customers deserve more, a 7 day holiday was really a 5 day holiday as we got there late afternoon, and had to have our cases down for 7 am , yes 7 am ,we are supposed to be on holiday, for an 8 am departure , and we were back home having a cup of tea by 3pm ,also there was 1 day tour included in the cost of holiday £ 375 pp, we went to lots of places, ( for about 30mins ) we were on and off the coach all day, this tour could have been done over 2 days giving us more time to look around,,all the other trips were approx £20/£25 pp, was i a happy holiday maker , ??? SORRY NOT THIS TIME,,
