All the positive comments below are endorsed. The welcome, all the staff, the lovely lounge +daily papers & honesty bar, the location away from but within walking distance of town centre & N Bay. We had the quiet twin to the back.
The bathroom was lovely (though I agree re power shower/better temp regulation would come up to rest of spec).
Both breakfasts were of a v high standard (maybe the toast should arrive with the cooked food as it was cold by the time it was needed, or a choice of now or with food could be offered): the second morning we chose scrambled egg & salmon & were blown away by the amount & quality of salmon.
My only reservations (& I write as someone with sleeping difficulties) were the lack of sound proofing between rooms (we could hear conversations, heavy footfall & snoring from nearby rooms, above? below? not sure) and the a) common blight of light/white curtains b) hanging of curtains on poles that leave wide gaps between curtain & wall/ceiling so that alot of light leakage occurs in addition. I always say that those who are blessed with easy sleep would sleep with darker, more well-fitting curtains - those who have sleep issues [apparently about 25% of the adult population] should be able to hope for a little consideration for a debilitating problem that can spoil a break away. The curtains had light blocking linings (hurrah!) but were hung too far from the window for that to be more than a gesture in the right direction. My husband would have woken with the dawn too were I not armed with emergency black out 'equipment' every time we travel.
