Rated 4 out of 5.
Nice hotel but was disappointed to find out on arrival that the swimming pool was being refurbished, this had not been mentioned when I made my booking with easy breaks. ...
Rated 5 out of 5.
It was my partner's 60th birthday and I wanted this to be a special break. This hotel certainly did not disappoint. Dinner was excellent. All courses were beautifully served and tasted superb. The breakfasts were buffet style with excellent choices and special dishes, eg Eggs Benedict, could also be cooked to order. I cannot find fault with this hotel and would be happy to recommend it to my friends....
