Neil - CWS Competition Winner

The room, food, staff and facilities at the hotel were all fantastic. We had a really relaxing time. The highlight was probably yesterday’s surf lesson! It’s our wedding anniversary this week, so it was a real pleasure to get away for a couple of days for an early celebration.

I wanted to thank you for all your efforts in making the arrangements with the hotel and for the staff at Crisp White Sheets for arranging the competition.
