            Wonderful staff who could not do enough for our stay, the service was always excellent

            Service in restaurant on Saturday 26/11/11 was slow due to being understaffed issues

          • Couple
            7.0

            The hotel was nice and relaxing.There was a wedding reception on when we arrived on saturday and there was a great buzz around the hotel.The staff were very helpfull troughtout our stay.And the food was very nice.

            The only thing i can think of that we disliked was the fact there was no Air-con or bottled water in our room. Other than that it was an enjoyable stay.

          • Couple
            9.2

            Staff excellent, friendly, helpful and a real interest in customers. Found desk staff brillant. Bed very comfortable, wedding in the hotel when we were there, but couldn't hear any noice, a very peaceful sleep. Breakfast great

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Excellent helpful staff and a general feeling of a busy but very well run hotel. Very good breakfast and dinner was excellent and very good value. Leisure centre and pool were all of a very high standard and well maintained. Location was good in that it was just outside city centre but it was within easy walking distance or simple bus journey and had good parking facilities and easy to get to and from by car. Nice grounds.

            A liitle bit noisy in the room at times.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Our room was excellent, the staff were very friendly and helpfull and the food was also excellent.

            The weather was bad other than that i was very happy

          • Couple
            8.2

            Rooms were lovely and garden was nice, staff were fablous. Would stay again for a special occasion.

            Nothing much I didn't like except restaurant was a little overpriced.

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            attending surprise wedding anniversary party, glad hotel moved barbeque indoors, food very good and a very enjoyable night

          • Single
            10.0

            Driving in the drive to the hotel was beautiful and the first impression of the hotel was very impressive. Reception was big, airy and compfortabe. Staff very friendly and helpful. The room was very nice. I loved the fact it had such a big bed, it was so comfortable. Your housekeeping staff must be very good as the room was spotless especially the bathroom because I am very particular about the cleaniness of a bathroom. Keys also easy to use. Overall a wonderful experience and I would love to stay there again and would definetly recommend it to friends.

            .The entrance would needed to be signed on the approach to the hotel as it comes up very fast on a corner and exiting is also difficult and dangerous. I was very disappointed with the tv. The remote was impossible to use. The tv is stuck in the corner of the wardrobe and can only be viewed from one side of the bed. If there is a couple in the room the second person would not be able to see it at all. I would have appreciated an iron and ironing board in the room rather than a press. A hair dryer is vital in every room and a hair straightener would be a bonus......

          • Couple
            6.2

            Was staying as a wedding guest , the food was superb. the staff very professional.

            The cost. Stay on the prom for E120 a night..walking distance to other venues , shops pubs , food beach.

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            a very nice welcome from reception staff,.attended wedding ,bar staff not ready for busy time after wedding had just finished .( main bar ).

            the price for attending a wedding

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            The food

            Room very cold due to broken window- helpful porter did his best to seal up the draught. Heater very small considering the size of the room and had to ask for another one

          • Family with children
            7.4

            relaxing athmosphere,nice leisure facilities, a nice garden walk and a great breakfast. there are lots of places where you can relax in peace and quiet.

            evening meal not good value for money. my wife ordered a cod meal in the bar and the portion was only enough for a child and was very expensive.the grill on the top of the radiator in our bedroom was covered with dust and fluff,could do with a good suction of the hoover.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            The food in the bar area and the service and staff were excellent.

            Think the bathroom could be updated

          • Single
            9.2

            lobby area is very relaxing and very pleasant environment, whether you are on your own or meeting it is very suitable, found the staff to be most pleasant and professional in their approach to guests and well trained/mannerly, think it is vital that the parking stays free this to me coming from a city is a huge plus point, quietand peaceful setting

            pool a bit dated looking, didnt appeal to me but now big problemas staff there most obliging

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Good value for thursday night, breakfast good and lots of sofas in lobby for reading and relax.

            Rate was almost double for Friday night !!
