Luxurious room and facility. Staff very friendly and helpful to get us settled in. The bed was very comfortable. The bath had a separate tub and my companion enjoyed a soothing soak before retiring.

Great place for families and all the staff are lovely. Nice pool, a children's play area in the restaurant which is a great idea. There is an outdoor play area too. They have kids clubs during the holidays so parents can relax while the Kids make friends and have fun. We'll go again!

Good breakfast, good swimming pool, nice small bar and easy way to access town by foot. We spent very nice weekend there. The only, small, downsides were that the double bed was a little bit small and TV reception was bad quality, but apart from that everything was perfect.
