We took a notion to visit the gateway for a Carvery lunch.....minus the kids for a little break. We didn't have a booking but were attended to very swiftly and seated by a guy I can only presume was one...

We had a superb stay. The leisure facilities are great with a steam room and sauna - swimming pool is spot on, the childrens pool is a tad small which is one of only 2 negative comments I have although that may be harsh however when there are a few kids in there there isnt much room for the parents!...

Very good food for a hotel package deal. restaurant staff were very helpful. Receptionist was very confusing. Good enough for a large group get together. Sea view rooms had a great view but very noisy if above the smoking area.

Back again for another mid-week break and everything is as good as ever. The room was huge and close to the lift as requested as my husband has limited mobility. Great sea view, although outside wall immediately outside the large window did restrict our view to the right, but really this is a minor detail. The staff were helpful, friendly...
