Highs & Lows

  • The breakfast — there was a special every day, but also variations on whatever you fancy that morning.

  • The live guitar most evenings was a delight.

  • The laid back atmosphere — the staff felt like friends.

  • The pool was pure magic, and gorgeous to look at and lie beside, but unfortunately it wasn't heated.

  • The bedrooms were perfectly functional, making the whole stay a great value for the cost.
