A friend and I treated ouselves to one of the "best rooms" (£210 a night) after a 24hr charity driving event where we had driven overnight from Scotland. When we arrived about midday we asked about checking in early as we were exhausted. The girl on reception said she would try but I don't think she tried very hard and it took 2 more attempts before we checked in but fair enough check in is 3pm. The room was very nice but to be honest I expected more, infact I went online to check I was in a "Best Room" as there was no balcony, no sea view, small (but very nice) bathroom or anything else to suggest this was "Best". It was a nice room but not worth £210.
We ate a Jamie's 15 rather than Zacry's as we wanted the sea view and the food was great. Following morning we had breakfast in Zacry's and it was very good.
Overall it's a nice place to stay in a great location so they will have no problems filling it but I didn't feel any desire to go rushing back.
