Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
- Child Friendly
- Dining Options
- Swimming Pool
Most of them were superb and we had requested quiet rooms with sea/lake views where possible. Harriet had arranged this for us and her hard work paid of as they were all granted.
