This is a hotel with a glorious history and past. Sadly, it was not for us...
Briefly, the rooms in the hotel were dated and were in need of some maintenance, the beds were as hard as nails, seriously hard! We were given a room with a garden view. :-( We would not stay again.
Some further detail:
The location of the hotel, hugging the cliff is spectacular. The room rates reflect this as this hotel is not a cheap option. Consider this though, if you are booking this hotel, are you booking it for its sea view from your room as that is how you justify the cost? If so, if you get a room with a garden view, how dissappointed are you going to be? I'd suggest gutted.
Then consider this magnificent property has not been very well maintained. We were given a good sized room with a good sized balcony facing the garden :-( We overlooked the pool and a pleasant well matured garden. The garden was well maintained by staff who brushed up leaves in the height of the afternoon. Its a pity that the same level of care was given to the rooms.
The aircon worked, but only just and was unable to get the room to a "cool" temperature. Important in July I'd suggest.
Then consider the bed you are being asked to sleep in is so hard you ache when you wake up. We had booked 2 rooms and noted that the beds in the other room had a matress topper on it and the beds in that room were ok with this. We talked to reception about the hard beds and the fact that the other room had a matress topper which made it ok. They appologised and offered to resolve this. After chasing this up later that day we were amazed when we realised the solution was to placed a blanket on top of the matress. This did not make the bed any softer, merely warmer, in a room that the aircon struggled to keep cool!
If you read the glowing reviews, they are left by people who had sea views. If you cant guarantee this, I'd suggest there is little point booking this hotel, even then you will have to accept some compromises which may well be worth having for the view.
