I stayed with my Mum for a long weekend from 16-19 May and we were blessed with amazing weather! The hotel is wonderful situated in a residential area, walking distance from the town centre, and very quiet at night.
We had a suite which had 2 rooms, a twin and double, with 1 bathroom. The double has the balcony overlooking the sea. The room was based at one end of the hotel which meant it was quiet, with no passing traffic to other rooms and away from the lift.
The rooms' amenities were excellent, with both rooms having a TV and tea-making facilities. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room to move around. The only advice I would give (personally) would be to facilitate each room with a hairdryer as the box blowing out hot air from a tube in the bathroom is uncomfortable to use and has insufficient power to dry hair efficiently (not good for the elderly, as Mum discovered!).
The public areas were roomy, light and airy. The restaurant has lovely views over the sea - we were seated by the window - and the food was excellent. We were there on a half board basis and found the breakfast options to be hearty and wholesome. The service was a little quick on occasions at dinner, the main arriving just after the starter had been cleared, but that didn't detract from our enjoyment. The staff were always efficient, professional and friendly.
We will return!!
