2/10 Poor

Tired and Dated
Extremely tired and dated hotel, furniture past it’s best and bathroom mouldy and ring of rust around the mirror. Booked on a DBB basis however on check in was told the restaurants had very limited availability, only 1 option for each night at unsuitable times, not quite the description as advertised. So disappointed we checked out a night early - would not return or recommend!

Great stay - would stay again
Loved my stay here. Room and bed was comfortable. Staff were lovely. Tried the pool and was a little taken aback when the waves started (as I'd missed that was a thing when booking... I'm sure this will be a major attraction for kids). Not sure why I read of complaints about the restaurant. Sure, where were some queues (probably struggling to get staff) - but they were friendly and my partner and I loved our dinner. Buffet breakfast was also very good, with plenty of choice. Only recommendation... improve signage to reception... I had to ask another guest when arriving by car. Otherwise, no complaints at all. loved it here.
