Healthy, hearty breakfasts set you up for the day, and the friendly, smiley staff are always happy to help with ideas of how to spend your days – unless of course you want to lounge by the lovely, clean pool all day! They’re happy to recommend restaurants for your evening meal, and will even call in takeaway if you can’t really be bothered to leave the hotel! As is often the case, it’s the staff who really make this hotel what it is – good facilities and excellent food mean nothing if they’re not served with a smile, and you get that and more at Velamar.
