This hotel is in a great location, very peaceful yet only a short distance to the shops, railway station and with plenty of public transport nearby for those without their own transport or wishing to have a break from driving. Great views of the sea if you're lucky enough to get a room at the front of hotel!
The reception and waiting staff really are some of the most friendly and efficient I have dealt with for a very long time - nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was superb, not only presented beautifully but tasting wonderful too. Not surprised to find that their chef is award winning.
However, upstairs was a completely different story - maybe I was unfortunate but my room was very small and in need of an update. It was a very long walk from reception, lots of stairs and long corridors. I was disappointed that my room wasn't hoovered for the five days I stayed, despite there being 'bits' all over the floor from the first day. I broke a glass in the bathroom on my second day and although it was taken away, it was never replaced. A pet hate of mine are wardrobes without a door (difficult to keep the room looking tidy), so I was unlucky to get one of those and oh! I would have liked to have a shower cap but the toiletries supplied were of good quality and I enjoyed using them.
Would I stay there again? - most definitely but I would ask for a better room. less
