    5/5 Excellent

    Nice area. Nice accommodation if you’re not looking for contemporary or modern facilities. Lovely bathroom. Check in was minimal, which is good but given key and told breakfast at 8am. Not advised when it finishes. The downstairs lounge had a terrible smell. No candles or scents. Not a 5* barely 3.5* Bed uncomfortable! Dirty laundry left in cupboard. No water bottles or filtered. Too many drawers in bedroom, could put a bigger and better bed of comfort. Too dark! Too much material around bed and window.

    Average Accommodation but Superb Dining

    Hotel is unusual.... we were in an external suite. Initially we thought wow but not really the case. There was a room above and the guy snored and visited the loo regularly in the night. Also not brilliantly clean... just ok.. expected better. Great Dyson fan which was appreciated. Elements of the room were tired, bath panel worn etc. Parking limited but I was lucky and got a good space. Restaurant superb, food amazing and cool sax player. Young man overseeing the restaurant operation was impressive. Breakfast average, felt in the way a bit as they had a wedding on that day. So, in conclusion not great accommodation but magnificent dining.... a mixed bag.

    Perfect stay

    We stayed in the Coach room I think which was a self contained apartment more than a hotel room. It was tastefully decorated and fully equipped with a double bed, sofa bed and an option for a Z bed too. Reception were very helpful on arrival and following a quick freshen up headed for the beach. On our return, the restaurant was closed on Monday but plenty of local eateries around. In the morning, we preordered our breakfast and the staff were very helpful and nothing was too much especially with two grizzly girls. Overall a fab location and would stay again in the future.
