We visited on 26 September 2013 for a 6 night stay.
Room 12 was superb. Very, very clean and a fabulous bathroom. The chef prepared us picnics dreamed of in the 'Famous Five' - Enid Blyton, for our days out around the Island.
Room Service breakfast was limited but excellent.
However, on 01 October 2013, the owner held a Cricket Club do with 100 guests. They took over the Resident's bar area before dining and we forfeited pre-dinner drinks on my husband's birthday! The menu was changed to cheaper food with no a la carte options. We had pies. We were not given notice of the event or menu change!
The hotel owner made no attempt to interact with guests at any time in 6 days but held his meetings with them in the bar/restaurant, interrupting their relaxation. It began to feel like his club, with guests to pay for it...
If the owner would be considerate to his guests (we did spend a lot in your hotel) and listen to Donna. Get help in the kitchen for Chef when you do your events to give a full menu and not just a less than good pie for everyone, without notice, then we may come back to this hotel.
I visit 5* hotels regularly and often find a small quibble. This had non until 01 October. A miraculous thing, according to my husband!
Thank you to Donna and Romano for excellent service especially. Obviously, the other staff worked hard for our stay.
