We stayed for one night only, it was a cheap hotel however the overall cleanliness of the hotel was really lacking. Particularly at breakfast, the glasses, utensils and milk jugs etc were very dirty. A disappointing stay overall

Fabulous weekend with 66 older people from London. The staff were so accommodating and it felt like home from home. The food was great and varied and the entertainment really good . Excellent value and highly recommend it especially for group holidays. Location ideal.
