Dear Charliestarfish, Thank you for taking the time to write a review on tripadvisor, it was a pleasure to meet you and to find out that the entertainment, reserved car parking space, bunk beds and sea-view were all appreciated - even though they were neither requested by you nor charged extra for by us. Not only are we praised regularly...

Hi Nicky, thank you so much for am excellent review. It was a great New Year, possibly the best yet, which was in part down to all the guests being such a good crowd.
