Thank you so much for your kind and honest review. I am pleased that you were happy with your room and that check in was easy for you. I agree that the view from the bar is fantastic - we really are lucky to be in such a great location overlooking the bay! We hope that we can welcome you back and impress you with the work we are currently putting into the hotel. I have seen some of the recently updated rooms and they certainly look lovely. Best wishes Laura Anthony Front of House Manager

This was a last minute booking at a great deal and the hotel did not disappoint. Service was excellent and efficient and all staff members were great. I had drinks in the bar and the bartender was very attentive. The room was tiny but perfectly adequate as I wasn’t in there too

I really don’t know, the accommodation was good although a little dated but it is a very old hotel and clean, breakfast was good, just the evening meal was not up to our expectations, there are a number of good restaurants within walking distance but you have to book, Rock fish restaurant was really good. Hope this is helpful

First of all i would say try the hotel restaurant the food is very good. Bistro Pierré is a 10 minute walk from the hotel, it faces the beach just before Rock Walk. The only other places i know that are good are: The Elephant & Number 7 Fish Bistro both are located at Beacon Terrace. These restaurant's are around the inner harbour so around a half an walk. Hope this helps you and you have a good time.

Dear Joanne C, Thank you for your question. We do not have 'refurbished rooms' per se, but all of our rooms are kept in good condition, and re-decorated periodically. We do have dog friendly rooms, and whilst the cleanliness and room standard are the same regardless, If you contact Reception or Reservations, they can take your request and action it directly. Kind regards
