From an 80 year old's version of the shower recess stepping over the large step was somewhat challenging as there were no support rails to hold onto and the bath mat was to small'

Fantastic staff, and very quiet dark room for sleeping considering the place was pretty much completely booked out!! The heated pool was not as warm as I was hoping, and my 4 year old found it too cold for her, but considering it was quite a cold day, and the pool is solar heated, it did not surprise or particularly upset me :) Over all, a great place to stay, will definitely use The Matador again in the future!
