Beds very firm which made our bones ache. The food could have been hotter and the bacon was very underdone. The vegetables were over cooked and they were barely warm.

Professional service, food also good. Mattress on the bed very worn. I got the impression that it is a hotel for dogs with guardians. It's hard to relax in a hotel where the dog barks all the time.

Booked on line after ringing for some more info. Call centre helpful and pleasant. Website booking form a bit awkward at accepting telephone numbers.

I really enjoyed myself, I was a bit nervous before hand first time I have been away without a family member, but I do make friends easily so settled in really good. My room had a sea view it was perfect, beautiful. The bed was so comfortable, I probably had one the best sleeps the first night, but the rest of the week was fine too. i only had one problem when I went to eat in the restaurant I had ordered soup with a bread roll, well it was rock hard, well I put that down as an error of judgement on their part.

My husband and I have had several holidays with Shearings and find them a first rate company, they are always wonderfully polite and helpful and do everything within their power to give you a fantastic holiday! We love travelling with them and have already booked a few more holidays in the near future!

I couldn't work it at all. The code wasn't accepted and it felt like I was going around in circles . The best feature was we'll call you back..
