Lovely light and modern building. Really good room – spacious, immaculate and with wonderful views of the harbour. Also, from one of the staircases you can watch the Twin Sails bridge tilting.
The breakfasts were great (though I have since seen the comment here on TripAdvisor that there were additional choices that weren’t obvious and agree that there should be notices on each table to explain). Very impressed at the evening meals in the restaurant – in particular the penne with tomatoes and basil! Also the prices for both food and wine were very reasonable.
Picked up some ideal presents in the gift shop, where there’s a huge choice.
The college is very close to the town centre and harbour, so it’s a short walk to anywhere you want to be really. Our only regret was that we weren’t around to enjoy one of the guided tours, or watch the sea survival training from the viewing platform outside the building. Absolutely delighted with our stay and will stay here again without hesitation. It’s a real bonus to know that you’re supporting such a good cause too.
