We stayed 4 nights in a deluxe room with amazing views of the harbour. Room 103 is across the boat slipway and not in the hotel building. Although the path needs flat heeled shoes, staff on reception were most accommodating in looking after mine as I changed into high heeled sandals each night!
Breakfasts were very good with lots of choice, well cooked, although a bit of a wait for hot food. Although we found the portion size at dinner ample we did feel the choice was a little restricted when staying longer than a weekend. When I asked when would there be a change to the menu I was told every few weeks and no offer to cook alternative dishes was made. When plaice "ran out" we were offered smoked haddock , but my husband had eaten that at breakfast! Having said that food was good and beautifully presented.
The area is of outstanding beauty and we were happy to walk the coastal paths from the hotel on two days. Not all rooms have a view so it is worth checking at the time of booking if you are not upgrading to a more expensive room,also be aware not all deluxe rooms are in the main hotel.
We found all the staff to be helpful and pleasant at all times.
