We stayed her for a 2 night break - B&B with dinner on one night and had a wonderful stay.
Yes the hotel is a bit dated but is currently beginning a period of renovation but this did not detract from the lovely stay. The hotel is situated overlooking browness bay and is ideally situated for a short stay -we could park the car and walk to the nearby restaurants and bars.
The hotel itself is splendidly grand and I hope the renovations do not spoil that. Our room was a standard double which was large with a full sized bathroom. A good selection of tea, coffee, hot chocolate etc in the room and nice Laura Ashley toiletries provided.
The night we stayed for dinner was delightful and the grand dining room was a beautiful setting to enjoy the fine cuisine. The emphasis is very much on quality rather than quantity and every mouthful was bursting with flavour. Breakfast is in the form of a self service buffet and again quality was excellent. We chose the cooked breakfasts but a continental selection was also available.
The staff were always very attentive and each person seemed to genuinely care that our stay was pleasant and that our needs were their top priority without being 'over the top'.
I can't wait to return
