Gorgeous place to stay

What a gorgeous hotel to stay at. The food was freshly cooked in front of you with a wide selection. Pancakes each day at 4pm. Friendly and helpful staff. Lovely pool with the beach next door. Would highly recommend it.

Amazing

Essex, United Kingdom

Spent an amazing week here as part of a wedding party and the setting, service and food couldn't have been more perfect. Laid back, chilled and staff lovely and made many friends during our stay, rooms cleaned daily, however bathrooms and, notably, plumbing left a lot to be desired, but didn't distract from a perfect holiday.
