Two of us, long time friends, stayed the one night, had dinner and then lingered for breakfast on the terrace the following morning. Glorious weather obviously helped the overall feeling of well being, but we really did have a fantastic time. We'd read about the rooms, didn't expect a view, pleased at the size (especially the bathroom Room 3) cleanliness, toiletries, tea, coffee, bikkis etc. Bed a bit on the soft side for my personal taste. Electric fan provided as we'd chosen that very hot and humid night. (The reward of which was a spectacular thunder and lightning storm at midnight) The lovely lady on reception had suggested coming down early for dinner, so we did, leisurely drinks on the terrace to admire THAT VIEW. Very clear, Solent and Needles. Dinner was great, spoilt for choice, obviously went for the fish off the daily menu. Sure that the alc would have been equally as great. Fresh, well presented, cooked to perfection. Only sadness was that friend had so gorged on the wonderful variety of fresh bread, that she couldn't face the Gourmet Assiette of Puds (for two) that I had my eye on. So had to contend with the cherry tart.......divine. Washed down with a very reasonably priced bottle of Marlborough Sauvignon. Breakfast, continental included, cooked extra...served after 10 am on the terrace, was also great. Lots of choice and undoubtedly the best dish of freshly prepared breakfast fruit that I have ever had. We found the staff friendly without being obsequious, we were unhurried and treated like special guests. Next time, however, it will be the Penthouse.
