Just returned from spending a weekend away in this hotel,We stayed in a different bay hotel last October and had a good time so thought we would do it again.
Hotel wasn't as close to the beach and town as we hoped, but cliff walk into town was far better than the road way.
First impressions when we walked into our room was very disappointing, in fact for a good few minutes I thought I wouldn't be able to stay in the room as it was so small, smallest hotel room we have ever stayed in, but after going out for a walk hubby talked me into staying by saying the room is only for sleeping.
Room and hotel were clean, Nice friendly reception staff, shame we couldn't say the same for the restaurant staff, never once seen them smile.
Food was ok, no shower gel or shampoo in the bathrooms which would have been nice, but plenty of milk, tea and coffee in the rooms.Oh and bad creaking floors in the bedrooms.
Nice size concert room, we saw two entertainers which were ok,
Looking around the hotel at the other hotel guest, you would have thought it was a Saga Hotel, we are in our sixty's but the others were or seemed a lot older.Dont know if this was because of the time of year!
At the time of booking this weekend away we were asked if we were celebrating anything, which we were, Our Anniversary and my Retirement, so we sort of thought we was going to be given a card or bottle of wine from the hotel but we received nothing, so couldn't understand why they would ask this question??
We were lucky with the weather, beach is very nice and town good for shopping.
Not sure we would stay in this hotel again, but we did enjoy our time away.
