One night stay
Superb treatment from the staff at Abbey Sands. From the lady at check in (upgrade very much appreciated, thank you so much) to the staff at breakfast. Additional thanks to Graham working Saturday evening for his help. Great location, highly recommended. Wouldn't hesitate to return (maybe with slightly warmer weather!).
