  • “Overall a very good stay and we had an excellent holiday, items I have already mentioned, no welcome pack (presume they’ve been discontinued), no Sky TV (as advertised) and finally, only 2 dinner plates.”

    No problem with the dinner plates as we dined out most nights anyway. The passes for the Harbour Hotel came in very handy as we used the swimming facilities a number of times.
