Looking Forward at the moment I feel that all we can do is keep your head down and wait to come out the other end. This recession is just starting to bite in our area of low unemployment, holidays have never been as cheap, hotel rates are all lower than a few years ago, things have never been better for the guests and with the increase in VAT to 20% . Why can't the goverment act like they have in France and Ireland they have reduced the VAT to 5% to try to kick start tourism which will help the economy. Never mind a small fish in a big pond springs to mind. We have just finished refurbishing room 17 with a new bathroom and make over. We are well on our way to a complete make over. New menus for our C J's Bar and Jules Restaurant we hope you will like the changes,
