Just back from a 3 night break & have to say the location is superb. We had a fabulous large bedroom on the corner of the hotel (room 111) that had huge french windows opening onto a balcony that went all round to the 2nd bedroom & bathroom further back. Extra bedroom was not requested but it was useful extra space for coats/suitcases etc. It also had another tv if needed. Lovely spacious hallway, & bedroom was large enough for a seating area with 2 easy chairs.
Bathroom was good but only had shower over the bath (they do not do shower cubicles in that type of suite??) Breakfasts were great, buffet style + options to order, eggs florentine, kippers, smoked haddock/poached egg etc. All delicious, with a beautiful sea view as well. We ate in the dining room each night & found the food very good, although some of the options were rather strange, such as sea bream a la grecque, which was a beautiful piece of fish, rather spoiled by being in a soup bowl with vegetables & broth?? Staff were all excellent, hotel was spotless, some bar prices a little over the top, however all in all very good. Would have liked a robe in the bathroom, complimentary water in the room, & would prefer the "10% discretionary tip" not automatically added to the bar bill, wine bill etc.
