This hotel has the friendliest staff I have ever experienced! .....And it is genuine, not forced! Their breakfast is also the best hotel breakfast I have ever had and I have stayed in 5 star hotels both here and abroad. It included a cereal, fruit and yoghurt buffet with an amazing choice of each as well as a full hot breakfast menu which is served to your table. I have a pet hate for hot breakfast buffets as food never tastes the same from the jamboree storage containers so I was delighted with this. The fruit selection included fresh berries, stewed rhubarb , stewed apple, melon balls and a selection of dried fruits. Breads and crossiants also abounded.
Now, the sea views from the front rooms are stunning. Ask for one of these rooms! However if a large group want to stay together and save money there are some apartments on the campus which are very comfortable also. Be warned though that these do not have a sea view though they are very well kitted out and serviced.
We had our evening meal in the bar. I ordered crab claws and although it was a starter portion I asked for them to beef it up into a main course which they did at no extra charge. They were nothing short of delicious. Thinking about them now makes me want to return which I intend to as soon as possible!!!!
