Do you have any comments about the accommodation and food?

We were unlucky with the weather which was cooler than expected - so didn’t want to sit outdoors for very long - although the view from our balcony was fantastic. Would be nice to have a small lounge area for the guests for those days when it’s cold - but maybe they do during the winter season. The food was amazing and the team at the hotel were so helpful and friendly.

Do you have any other feedback for us?

I had some worries about my fitness for this holiday and the team were careful to make sure that I was comfortable with what was proposed and looked out for me while we were out and about. We had a couple of good conversations with Becky at ITS - which really helped make the choice to go - and then to be prepared! Nice to have the human touch as well as the email lifeline!
