We had a lovely welcome on arrival from Sophie (Reception) who showed us to our very nice room (No 3) with a magnificent sea-view and balcony. The bed was a bit hard and the shower very weak - In fact we couldn't get it to work properly at all on the first night. Below our balcony was a splendid mature garden with topiary and lily ponds from which a pathway led to the Esplanade and beach. Dinner was 'alright', not 'great'. On the second night my baked cod was overcooked and thus tough and chewy! Service was quick although a bit amateurish at times (the wine waiter said he didn't like wine and after sticking our bottle up his nose he said that to him it smelt like cider!); but breakfast was indeed 'great'. At times the tap water tasted like disinfectant so I would advise guests to have bottled water in their rooms - especially for morning tea! There was a good indoor heated pool and a hot tub which we enjoyed each day. On the whole we enjoyed ourselves - The location contributed 50% to this.
