“much better than expected”
Reviewed 24 March 2012

I have nothing but praise for this hotel. Apart from getting lost finding some of the public rooms occasionally, everything was spot on, good food, very friendly staff and enjoyable entertainment on two evenings plus a warm and comfortable bedroom, what more do you want from a coach holiday.I went with my wife, daughter and son-in-law and enjoyed it from start to finish.

I have just returned from an all inclusive weekend at the Prince of Wales and thoroughly enjoyed it. I think people who moan about this hotel, must expect more for the pennies they pay. This is our 3rd year staying at a Shearings hotel and the room this year was the best yet. The breakfast was all you could want! There was a good choice for the evening meal. The entertainment was great and the staff very friendly and that includes Mark the barman. We had no moans about his attitude whatsoever. In fact, we had a bit of a laugh and joke with the guy, with him being Scottish and us Welsh.
Yes, there were times when he was under pressure, but he handled it well. Good on you Mark.
Anyway, as I said a weekend the whole party enjoyed and we would not have a problem staying there again.

We stayed for nine nights as independent self drive travellers and were very pleased that we had chosen this hotel as it offers excellent value for money. All staff are friendly and helpful; rooms are clean and comfortable; good food with a varied menu (three courses, different choices each night) and public areas are comfortable. The hotel is a convenient place from which to explore and visit a number of places within reasonable distance. We will certainly be staying here again - all inclusive or not!

A friend and I took this holiday, 30th January to 3 February 2012. The coach and driver were excellent but it was the hotel which really made the holiday, clean comfortable rooms; friendly efficient staff; an excellent restaurant serving very wide choice of good food. We fully intend to return as soon as we can arrange a suitable occasion.

Room Tip: We only experienced one room, but from conversation with others on the tour all seemed of similar st...
