Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Did not like the bed or covers they need replacing was cold each night duvet not big enough and old and flat . Bathroom sink behind overflow and round plug hole not clean but hotel offered to clean straight away but was only staying 2 nights so just left it . Breakfast big let down on variety but cooked lovely and fresh and tasty but waiting for a drink is not good when you have to wait so long that you have eaten Your breakfast and not offered any Jams for toast. Very modern and lovely hotel with fantastic facility’s and in fantastic area , our view was brilliant and room huge , struggled moving the dressing table stool as all very heavy furniture , would be nice to have a few hot chocolates in room adjacent to the coffee and tea facility’s . You have to use the stairs so be prepared . Reception staff lovely , have recommended the hotel to my grandchildren to go to as the facility’s for kids from hire of pushchairs and wet suits to body boards , bucket and spades and all the activities for kids is outstanding . Parking easy . Will return one day , we’ll done with Covid restriction practice .

The only draw back was the TV stations could get BBC 1 & 2. All other channels kept breaking up. Apart from that the service was excellent and the staff were brilliant
