    I can't recommend the Fountain Dale highly enough. Liz always makes you feel welcome and nothing is too much trouble for her. Lovely lady. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfasts are the best in Skegness. Definitely be going back.

    I honestly could not think of anything that I did not like, The 4 of us like to play cards in the evening and Liz came through a couple of times with a large pot of tea.

    Started well with a friendly welcome and Pot of tea with biscuits. Excellent Breakfast, well presented. Good choice of fruit, cereal, Yogurts etc. Plenty of toast and preserves to go with it. Relaxed atmosphere, Liz happy to chat and have a laugh.Could not ask for more!
