Accommodation was good but unfortunately the weather was bad the night we were there and I think it has coloured my judgement a bit! Overall it was good, the rooms were big and the hotel itself had plenty of space for hanging out and relaxing. The staff also kindly cleaned our hire car for us without asking which was great as it was becoming a bit embarassing. Things like that are a really nice service when you are travelling about on holiday.
