This is a comfortable hotel with friendly staff. Judging by the amount of people we met who visit it 3 times each year we thought it was worth a try. Initially we were put off by the shabby front but my wife and I were quickly won over. The food is excellent as good as any 4 star hotel we...

Had a couple of the all-inclusive 5 night breaks at this hotel and haven't been disappointed yet. Rooms aren't too bad but the main attractions are the food and entertainment. Excellent all round in the restaurant and the evening cabarets would be hard to beat. The free bar is an added bonus. Hope to continue visiting for many years to...

A fabulous night spent with friends. We had a delucious Xmas meal, served in the cabaret room and overnight stay for under £40. The entertainment was fabulous which included a good comedian and the resident compare/singer/comedian Buddy Lee could fill a room on his own merit. He is fantastic with the audience and a great singer too! The dancers were...
