We stayed for 3 nights and ate dinner in the hotel twice. It was a lovely big double room with a fabulous sea view, the bathroom was good too. A corner bath (just my size!) with a shower over provided either a relaxing soak or a quick once-over! The room was comfortably warm

There is an accessible room with a walk in shower and grab rails etc in the bathroom with an emergency call cord. I was put in this room for 3 nights W/E August 20th 2017 and I am able bodied. So if anyone was enquiring about an accessible room for those dates and were turned down, then that wasn't the case. (Isn't there a law about that? Discrimination?) It's room No.1, but beware, it's next to the kitchens, the public toilets, utility cupboards, access to other rooms and adjacent to the bar. Very noisy.
