Let me set the scene: We were one of a party of four coaches. Our holiday was a budget holiday, At 66 I was easily one of the youngest members. I was also easily one of the people with the least mobility, having to use a wheelchair for anything more than a 50 yard stagger. We ate away from the...

We had a superior estuary twin room, which was very comfortable, the beds especially. We enjoyed a very pleasant meal in the bar, which was exceptional value for money, and adequate portions. The hotel...

We enjoyed our recent stay. Our room was comfortable but the furnishings were a bit tired. This hotel is used for coach groups and is quite large. There were two coaches in during our stay which was on a 3 night dance break. The food we had was good overall with a reasonable choice on the set dinner menu we...

I have stayed at this hotel twice. I will start with the good points; Both occasions the concierge and dining staff were polite and helpful. Hotel has a great location being within easy reach of shops and the beach as well as nearby towns/villages. Unfortunately this is where the good points end. Bad points: Both occasions the rooms have been...
