We stayed here with a group of friends for one night over a perfect June weekend. The hotel is perhaps a little tired and in need of refurbishment but this didn't spoil our stay. Our room was clean, well-decorated and the beds very comfortable. We didn't have a sea view as this was extra and unnecessary for our short stay but I imagine the views from the rooms with a sea-view are stunning and worth the additional cost. The rooms looking out to the back still have a pleasant view of hills however. Breakfast was good and the staff were friendly and efficient, even providing us with a special request - cucumber sandwiches and a cream tea in the garden. I think the hotel is perhaps over-priced but worth it for the location and the excellent beach just below the hotel.
