This is now the fourth time we've visited this hotel and have already booked for next year. It offers clean and comfortable rooms with plentiful and tasty meals and loads of different activities and crafts to occupy you. Most people don't really leave the hotel as there is so much to do. It caters for all ages and most things are under cover so you don't have to worry about the weather. Yes the rooms are old fashioned but that doesn't bother me at all as I'm an old fashioned girl. The only problem we had was with an extremely large group of men and boys who were there on some sort of 'rugby tour'. They were quite noisy and drank a lot and one afternoon completely took over the swimming pool closing it to the rest of us. I would like to see a ban on such a large group of people as they did tend to 'take over' especially at nights. Apart from that we had a very enjoyable time and the weather was great for a change. Golfers enjoy this holiday as there are four free golf courses.
