A warm, friendly hotel with well serviced bedrooms, fabulous views but beginning to feel a little in need of improved plumbing and updated bathrooms. There was a smell from the drainage in the bathroom and in the ladies downstairs. Breakfast was disappointing with no quality food and we ended up eating croissants which were OK. Not impressed that the Poached Haddock we received for breakfast was going off and we didn't eat it and although this was mentioned freshly brought in Haddock was not offered to us the next day. We would have really liked this for breakfast. We heard the Kedgeree was off in the evening which is not surprising. Given the poor quality of the breakfast, may be to many people's taste but not ours, we only had bar snacks in the evening. These were acceptable but nothing more. We didn't dare risk the dinner and went out for our main meals. We are fussy about quality local food and understand that this raises costs but claims should not be made for good food.
