    Everything about this hotel was fantastic! Staff and service was excellent. Staff were attentive and anticipated our needs without being intrusive. Facilities were of a high standard and included everything we needed. The outdoor pool was exceptionally enjoyable. WiFi was excellent - both in the room and at the pool. It’s worth booking a club Horizon room as the lounge is worth every penny.

    Staff were great and courteous. Duty managers were attentive. Rooms were small but clean and the view was lovely. Pool is small for a big hotel but the staff were helpful.
