Visited this terrific Chinese restaurant within the hotel complex. Ask for a window table with great views of the beach and Old Harry rocks. The food is excellent, the staff are friendly and welcoming. Visit it when you can you will enjoy it

Hi there, can anyone tell me if the kids can use the pool at any time or are there any restrictions? Thank you in advance. Karen

    No restrictions were made during our stay. It's very deep at one end and not very big. Swimmers stand no chance
