  • The staff were very helpful and the car park was convenient, the spa area was also welcoming. The hotel was exceptionally clean, room was fantastic and the food we thought was very good, great chunky chips. Dinner at the banyans was gourmet.

    The stay over new year was not good, the pool was a resistance pool not for swimming and the jacuzzi was small.
