We stayed 4 nights over a long weekend in an Executive sea-view room with big balcony. Room was enormous with all facilities and was very clean but decor needs updating next time it is done. Free wifi is essential for me and worked well on all our devices. Our room was immediately over the bar which was not a problem except for when staff turned up the ceiling speakers without realising. Not a problem mid-afternoon. More of a problem when it woke us at 1.15 a.m. They were quick to apologise and turn the music down both times.
The Restaurant is excellent. Very well managed with efficient, professional staff who are always pleasant. The food is excellent too - very enjoyable, plenty of choice, and tasty. We've got good appetites but could only manage two courses - if you like deserts you need to miss the starters. Breakfast had a huge choice of food which never appeared to 'have been there ages'.
All staff were professional, helpful, and very pleasant including the lady who cleans the lounges each day. We never saw a queue at reception as that was very efficient too.
Free car parking is good with plenty of space and ready access to the inside of the hotel.
Was everything we hoped for and we will definitely return as soon as we can.
