Sinah Warren Coastal Hotel: Fun in the Sun and an Offer to Readers from Warner Leisure Hotels (Collaboration)

Warner Leisure Hotels offer all-inclusive holidays at some 13 locations around the country, from fine country homes to holiday villages. The hallmark of their offering is that it's for adults only, ensuring a peaceful break. There's a wide range of activities on offer, from heated swimming pools, spas and gyms to sports like shooting and archery. And there's evening entertainments too. If this sounds all a bit too energetic, you're of course perfectly free to chill out for your stay and do nothing but enjoy the food and hospitality.

Arriving at Sinah Warren Coastal Hotel on Hayling Island

I recently stayed with Mrs Grey Fox at Sinah Warren Coastal Hotel on Hayling Island. Just to the east of Portsmouth, the island is a haven for wildlife. The hotel looks onto Langstone Harbour and just behind are beaches overlooking the Solent, with the Isle of Wight beyond. It's a glorious setting and, soon after arriving and settling into our room, we walked around the coastline on a bright, warm, blustery afternoon. White horses over The Solent showed a stiff breeze which was enjoyed by acrobatic kite surfers on the beach. Windsurfers and small boats sped around in clouds of brilliant white spray and overhead birds of all kinds swooped and dived. 

Our room was comfortable, with proper milk for morning tea rather than little plastic containers of UHT - always a sign that thought has gone into the hospitality. Food is very good and plentiful and the evening entertainment, normally something I'd be wary of, was excellent with very high quality musicians.

Evening entertainments

We were unable to book any treatments in the spa as the hotel was busy the weekend we were there and we hadn't planned ahead adequately, but we enjoyed the well-equipped gym, jacuzzi and checked out the archery and small-bore rifle range. There is certainly plenty to do. The staff are friendly and helpful. As ever with all-inclusive hotels, it's easy to feel slightly lost, so a bit of homework and a chat at reception on arrival helps orientate and clarify.

Warner's hotels are all-inclusive and very reasonably priced. If you need to take family or parents away for a few days to a hotel with a wide variety of activities without breaking the bank, one of the Warner Leisure Hotels would fit the bill perfectly. The clientele is more mature and there were many family groups (without young children of course) making for a friendly atmosphere, but you can be as sociable or not as you prefer.

Souvenirs, kite surfing on the beach, Portchester Castle

Sinah Warren is a large hotel, with some 280 rooms and chalets at different price points. It's well-placed for local sights, from the historical naval dockyard at Portsmouth with HMS Victory and the Mary Rose, to Chichester and the Hampshire downs and coastline. We spent time at Portchester Castle, a fascinating Roman/Norman castle and explored the coastline of Hayling Island - you won't run out of things to do, either at or away from the hotel.
