We booked a mid-week two night stay, at short notice, to celebrate our 32nd Wedding Anniversary at the beginning of July. Initially we booked an inland room, however, upon reading more reviews, we decided to phone and upgrade to an estuary view, which was in the region of £20 more. Karen in Reservations, couldn't have been more helpful, she gave us a complimenhtary upgrade to a room with full estuary view, especially as their rates had been slightly reduced in the couple of days since we'd booked. On arrival we were able to park with no problem and there our car stayed for the duration of our visit. The staff in Reception were very welcoming, Chloe, receptionist and, I believe, Jo - Guest Service Manager, we were shown the bar and restaurant where breakfast would be served and then to our lovely room. We were in room 502, on the third floor at the far right-hand corner of the building. Rooms are nicely decorated in a nautical style, very comfortable bed, good quality bedding and furnishings. There is a "balcony basket" containing books, blankets to keep the chill of the evening at bay, slippers and a pair of binoculars which meant we could watch the many fishing boats and yachts coming in and out of the estuary and admire the wonderful scenery, the view from our balcony was to die for! Also in the room are two decanters, one containing sherry and the other gin and each evening at around 6.30 there was a tap at the door from a young lady offering ice and a slice - very civilised! Can't think of a nicer way to start the evening than sitting on the balcony sipping a G & T watching the boating world go by - idyllic! There was also a very well stocked mini-bar including spitits, beers and wines, a good selection of teas and coffees, biscuits and snacks. The bathroom was very modern, but with a shower, no bath, in 502, however the shower has both a fixed, deluge, and flexible shower head, with plentiful hot water and one thing which is often lacking in many hotels, lovely large fluffy white towels to envelop youself in, not to mention equally fluffy, snuggly, white robes. Breakfast in the Jetty restaurant was very good, lots of choice, huge variety of juices, croissants, pain-au-chocolat etc., great coffee excellent service. We booked dinner there for our anniversary and were not disappointed, again excellent service from Matt, a very pleasant South African man, who brought us each a glass of champagne, with the compliments of the hotel followed by a bottle of bubbly from our children who had phoned earlier that day to arrange for it to be brought to our dinner table. Twice baked cheese soufflé was delicious, cod and crab main also wonderful and the mash served with the cod tasted just like it used to, buttery and creamy - haven't tasted mashed potatoes that good for a long time! To finish we both chose the lemon meringue desert, lovely chewy and crunchy meringue, sharp tangy lemon sorbet, cream and limoncello drizzled through it all, divine combination. We would highly recommend a stay here, lovely hotel, terrific views, excellent service from friendly staff, terrific food, luxurious spa facilities - pool, jacuzzi, sauna etc. A huge thanks to all of the staff we encountered, especially Chloe, Jo, Helen (Front Office Manager) and Matt who all made our stay all the more enjoyable. As far as we're concerned #1 in the area.
