I agree with another review that it was a little disappointing from the outside, but when you get inside it is definitely more modern and inviting. The staff were very helpful and the facilities are very good.

The staff were extremely friendly, the organisation was superb and the entertainment was perfect. For the first time since our four children were born, we were able to fully unwind. Please note, this is not a hotel for...

Good location and easy to get to Watergate Bay and Padstow. Food (dinner) was well presented and fresh - again good service. I think the quality of the breakfast might be...
