I don't understand why this hotel has some bad reviews, I can only think they must be used to staying at The Ritz? Our first impression on arrival is the position of the hotel on the seafront overlooking Caldey Island with level walking along the beautifully kept seafront gardens. With a group of 24 our host Penny greeted us with a warm welcome.. All staff were very friendly and accommodating. A good number of rooms overlook the sea, mine included, giving me the chance of taking some lovely photos at sunrise from my bedroom. The food was very good, especially for the price, my favourite was the Whitebait followed by the Gammon and morning breakfasts. Entertainment on 4 of our 6 night stay was excellent. As well as the lovely sandy bays the town is very pleasant with a small hill down to the harbour - not too strenuous for us oldies!
The hotel takes dogs but we did not hear them and they definitely did not cause a problem. Our best experience of all was the Hotel Courier who came on several trips with us, fun and laughter all the way, joining us in the evening for the entertainment, one can only describe Hubert as unique and loveable - we shall all miss him.
Every lunchtime Dolphins came leaping into the bay, a wonderful sight.
There is a lack of fruit and a small piece of cheese given but one only has to ask and it is provided. On notification of a shower problem in a room Penny had this dealt with immediately along with a kind gesture of an apology. All rooms are very clean as is the hotel itself.
All 24 of our group said they would like to return to this hotel again sometime, I think that says it all - . thank you Penny and staff it was great. . .
