Great location, a bit of a walk into town, but nice and flat. The only thing that went wrong was the sofa bed wasn't made up on arrival; quick phone call to reception and sorted within 10mins.

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family and small children
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Service was great. Breakfast buffet was great. Bar could benefit from an upgrade around the pool to bring more locals and atmosphere in rather than having to go into town. Town was a bit far to walk so hotel bar needs some cheaper drink and bar by the pool upgrade. Coffee shop would be handy for real coffee lovers.
