I had some reservations about staying at this hotel after reading some of the reviews but I can honestly say that we had a fabulous time. I went with a group of others on a driving weekend. It would be fair to say that the staff looked after us very well which even extended to the security of the cars in the car park. The rooms were very clean and there was plenty of hot water for the shower. Unfortunately I didn't get a room with a sea view but I didn't spend much time in the room and in any event the upstairs lounge had a fabulous sea view.
The service in general was very good and the staff were pleasant but the service in the restraunt both for breakfast and evening dinner was excellent. The choice on the menu was very good and there was plenty of vegetables with dinner in fact too much. There is no doubt that chef was excellent and he even came out to meet us, he was very friendly as well as being an excellent cook.
I stayed at the hotel for two nights and I was so impressed that I have put this review on as soon as I have returned home because it seems so unfair that there are so many poor reviews on this hotel and as far as I am concerned it is unecessary.
