Nice enough hotel, clean and comfortable. Check in and out straight forward abs friendly staff. Bathroom a little run down for a 4 star hotel and service in the bar not particularly great but overall a pleasant stay.
Really well organised with covid19 restrictions in place. Loverly rooms, clean and tidy. The only downs sides were the bar table service was very slow and the english cheese board could do with a list of cheeses as we had no idea what we were eating.
The hotel grounds are well presented and clean, the spa and pool area is nice too. I didn’t have dinner but the breakfast was good. Overall a nice stay and would stay again. The only criticism I have is the changing rooms, £1 for the locker which I didn’t know prior so left my things in locker not locked and didn’t have plastic bags to put your wet swimwear in. Providing robes would be more comfortable too. Don’t agree with £8 parking charge, should be included as a guest. Located a few mins drive to the beachfront, which I’m guessing maybe a 10 mins or so walk and about 15 mins drive to the sandbanks.
