The hotel was in a great location and the room was nice. The main negative was the pool - we wanted to go for a relaxing swim, so booked the last slot at 9 pm. We were surprised to find several children playing in the pool unsupervised. The pool was small, and this meant that there was no room for us to swim or relax.

Overall we had a lovely stay but it’s very expensive for what is basically a basic hotel. It didn’t even include breakfast in what was nearly £250 per night for a family room The room was a great size but the cleaning was poor. Only half made the beds and new towels. No cleaning at all. Was a bit grim. No new toiletries either. Sink or loo not cleaned. Pool is lovely but small. Breakfast was amazing and the manager really gorgeous and friendly as were the front of house staff. We ate dinner in the restaurant which was very Overpriced and not so nice. No veg kids options at all. Great location but totally overpriced. Wouldn’t come back unless I got a deal
