We spent a wonderfully relaxing fortnight at the East Winds with our teenage daughter in mid July. We stayed in one of the deluxe rooms (No 11) which was very well furnished with plenty of storage space even for three of us. The bathroom is spacious with a spectacular shower area. Although we did have a slight plumbing problem one... More
