Disliked: Cleanliness, room comfort
Overpriced
Felt it was overpriced and would have hoped it was cleaner considering the current climate. Also the bed was below par.

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Just had a weekend here. Lovely and safe accommodation and very clean. Staff at reception very helpful. Swimming pool was very well organised and safe. The only terrible thing was the mattresses on the beds. I have never experienced such bad beds in my life. I know looking at previous reviews and answers to this they say the delivery of mattresses is delayed due to Covid. These mattresses have been this way long before Covid! If you are going soon take a duvet or matted topper to sleep on! But overall a fabulous place to stay.
