We stayed at this hotel as part of a large conference. Our first floor room was large with a sea view but in places the grandeur was fading. Whilst we had a recently upgraded bathroom, the rest of the room was starting to show its age. During our stay we visited a number of other rooms and its true to say those were better. So it maybe we were unlucky. Ask for a room higher up and I suspect you will be happier.
The bar was busy though a little expensive. Can't comment on the food as we ate out almost all the time, the one exception being where they had to serve dinner to 200 people in 45 minutes, a challenge for any hotel.
Parking was a challenge when the hotel is busy, so we ended up parking over the road in the rugby ground by arrangement with the hotel.
