Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hi Yes there is smart casual although a couple of people we saw in shorts and sliders but they looked very out of place in the di I g room. At dinner men wore shirt and trousers and ladies a dress or trousers top etc. we quite enjoy putting something nice on after a busy day and having a lovely dinner. Hope this helps and you have a great time - you won’t be disappointed I’m sure

I believe you can use the indoor pool and whirlpool as part of the little gym on site.

Yes, but the car park is always busy. There are also 5 or 6 Electric charging point if you have an EV.

The Longstore in Charlestown is well worth a visit. If it's during tourist season, best book in advance. Excellent seafood (of course). Lovely area to walk around. There is an appetite-improving walk along a section of the SW Coastal walk, which will take you in to Charlestown, or it is a very short car or taxi ride.
