When we got to the hotel, Monica greeted us and was very friendly. She carried my very heavy bag to the room, showed us around etc. The champagne with nuts was a great touch also.
The room was very nice.
The breakfast in the morning was delicious and having it in the comfort of our room (India) wearing our bathrobes felt very decadent. (Although the 2 young girls who brought us the breakfast were probably a little too shy and didn't really explain the process as they should have). Apart from that, the food was very good and I really enjoyed the champagne.
We had dinner also in the restaurant on one evening. The food was very tasty. The service however was a little cooler than we'd experienced with Monica so were a little disappointed. In addition, we kept having to ask for the water jug to be refilled.
However, generally speaking, this was definitely one of the nicer hotels I have stayed at in the UK. I was very impressed.
As some people have pointed out, the area around it idn't as nice as it could be, but it's still very nice having the sea so close to the hotel. The old town also is very quaint (and only 15 mins walk away), and little villages nearby are definitely worth a visit - though we probably could have spent more time enjoying the hotel, as it was such a relaxing place to be.
