Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Rooms were tidy enough, but dated. Passageways and service areas worn. Great heated pool. Dining service very slow - over an hour between entree and mains made us all feel very flat. Plenty of staff, just poor service. Food was fine

Review:   Great place for people of every age range. Relaxed friendly atmosphere at all times. For the Fitness conscious there's a adequate gym plus squash and tennis courts. The family swimming pool is always well heated and good fun. Rooms are always clean and tidy. Meals are of a very high standard.

Review:   Great place and enjoyable food. Pool was excellent. Unfortunately the beds are not good. They are very bouncy. It was very hot when we arrived and there is no air con in the rooms. We had the ceiling fan going our entire stay but it didn't do much to cool us down.
