My wife and I arrived on Good Friday to a very warm welcome. We were shown to room 3 which had a beautiful sea view.
The room was compact but this did detract from our break whatsoever.
The bed was lovely and comfortable and there were a lot of nice little touches (fluffy dressing gowns were wonderful! )
The bathroom was a decent size with an excellent shower.
Good location overlooking the North Bay with town and South Bay close by. Lots of places to East and drink within a sorry walk.
Now we come on to breakfast.... There is a wide choice of breakfasts to be had, but the full English is of such quality that we didn't deviate from it during our stay! I would've loved to have tried the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs but I couldn't resist the cooked breakfast!
There are also cereals and croissants available with toast and jam too.
All in all this was a stunning break in a beautiful room in a hotel staged by genuinely nine people. Every time we saw anyone from the hotel they were very polite and it always felt like they couldn't do enough to help you enjoy your stay, but without being overbearing.
We hope to return at some point in the hope of getting one of the bay window rooms!
Thank you all for a lovely break!
