Just back from a week here and we had a fantastic holiday. Ok - the hotel is a bit old and dated in places and could do with a spruce up in parts but its really quite charming and quaint. Lovely bar area with comfy leather seats music and dancing every night. Huge room on the 4th floor fantastic views of the sea. we also made good use of the fridge for wine and cold water etc., Staff were helpful and polite at all times. Only moan was the food - we were bed and breakfast and were dissapointed - its not 4 star for food. Having said that we always found something to eat . Ofcourse there was cerial and toast and always eggs but the food on display seemed to have been cooked a few hours before. So moans over - - We had a ball, met some great people, danced the night away and can't wait to return. Don't listen to the complaints about this hotel - go there and experience it for yourself but then lets not tell to many people because it might become so popular we might not get in next time!!!
