We came up for a formal dinner and decided to stay overnight. The hotel has been revamped since I last stayed, and has became very stylish throughout. All the staff we encountered were friendly and efficient. And they looked happy working here - always a good sign in a hotel. Our room was elegantly decorated, and with good bathroom fittings etc. Breakfast was very good, and we had a second pot of coffee outside to enjoy the beautiful views from their terrace.
For chilling out there are lounges with lovely sea views as well as the Terrace. Standard room rates are quite high, but not silly given the quality of the place. But some of their special rates are excellent value for a place that has such a "feel good" factor. I have given 5 stars to represent the "funky style" of the hotel rather than an indication of 5 star "plushness". Parking is a little limited, and next time we wil bring our smaller car, as the spaces can be quite tight!
I have done a separate review of our dinner in the restaurant, rather than hotel, section of tripadvisor.
