We stayed for one night and had dinner. Our room over looked the sea and as soon as we arrived we spotted a group of 11 seals sunbathing near the shore, so we dropped our bags and went out on a shore walk. We returned to a very comfortable room with everything we could have asked for. We booked a table for 7 and were seated at the window overlooking the sea. We ordered from A la carte menu and the food was very nice, perfect portion sizes and with some gluten free options available (I am coeliac). Price was a little but more than we expected, but not too expensive.
Our room was a decent size and had a large double bed comprising of two singles bolted together, but this is very commonplace now and it was very comfortable and clean. Our room had a seoerate hallway which the bathroom and bedroom had desperate doors from, which I preferred. There was plenty of storage for luggage and clothes and the bathroom was big, modern and spotless.
Breakfast had a good choice from full English to continental, buffet style. I asked our maitre d about what foods were gluten free, and although he was very keen to help, he didn't really know this. Fortunately, another member of staff pointed out that "allergens" were printed on the rear of the food labels at each item.
We used the swimming pool there and it was very clean too. Staff at reception provide towels and locker keys. There is only one shower in each changing area, so showering before and after swimming can mean a wait if it's a busy time. There are two showers at pool area, but one didn't work and the other was so powerful it wasn't pleasant to use.
We took our time packing to leave as we had been upgraded to a late check out. Unfortunately, this hadnt been communicated to whoever phoned our room and told my husband we were late on checking out at 1030. Cue some frantic packing and unecesary embarrassment at check out. The receptionist did apologise, and to be fair she was extremely friendly and professional during our stay. I've given the hotel 5 stars despite this, because the overall experience there was of luxury, comfort and welcome. less
