Liked: Room comfort
Having stayed at the Crest previously I was quite disappointed in the way the property has deteriorated, specifically in relation to maintenance issues, cleanliness was not fantastic to be honest, shower would not work and we have an ant infestation, on a positive note the reception staff were very pleasant, unfortunately I would not stay here again.

The property was amazing 👏. It was clean and spacious and had all that we needed. Although we were told the property would be cleaned every other day but we had the cleaners in daily. And the gift of bread rolls every morning was much appreciated. I would definitely recommend staying at the Crest.

We asked the reception if they could accommodate early check in and late check out. While early check in was not possible we did get to check out at 2pm rather than 10am for free. We stayed for 7 days and housekeeping came to refresh our linen on day 5. We had read that this was meant to be every 3 days though apparently the do not clean on a Sunday which is why ours was delayed a day. Plain Warm bread is provided daily for free as well as daily dishwasher tablets and bathroom shower gel/shampoo and soap. Amenities are excellent, dishwasher, washing machine, iron, hairdryer and tumble dryer included. Tv includes many paid for uktv channels including all sky sports. One safe is provided in the master bedroom and includes a charging plug inside. Most rooms also have a couple of uk plugs as well as european ones. We had the 10 person villa and this included 4 bathrooms. Two of which were en suites on the top floor. The garage contains a table tennis table, ball and rackets. There is also a squash ball but no rackets. We had a private pool. The pool is not heated. There is a communal pool and jacuzzi behind main reception too, they are not heated either. Overall an excellent stay. 5/5!
