Upon arrival at the hotel, we were warmly greeted by the doorman but the guy on reception didn't continue with the warm charm. Instead we felt like we were an inconvenience to him.
The rooms themselves are spacious but the bathroom looks a little dated and I was surprised that the curtains weren't thicker... early in the morning the sun was shining and the room was really light and woke us up! The best thing about the room has to be the stunning views.
The next day when we went down for breakfast, we wondered what to expect and we weren't disappointed. The food was delicious and the staff were very friendly... they certainly made up for the guy on reception.
During our stay, we checked out the spa and it is well worth a visit. We went about 8pm 7pm on a Friday night and it was very quiet, perfect timing as it felt like it was our own spa!!
From the outside the hotel looks a little dated and it needs a clean.
The location: It is a short walk to the shops and restaurants in the Bay and it took approx half an hour to walk to the town centre.
