We booked to come here during the third week of January for a stay just three weeks later: big selling points were the variety of meals available and the sun terrace on the fourth floor roof. Unfortunately the chef was on holiday and the terrace was closed for repairs so that was a major disappointment for us. The staircase is pretty steep and uneven but our room (Ocean) was fine though looking a bit tired, especially the bathroom. The staff were friendly enough but for these cold evenings it would have been nice to have a fire in the big fireplace but none was forthcoming. There is more to running a hotel or B&B than just putting facilities in place: they need to be actively used, maintained and promoted to the clients. It will be interesting to see how the small, new garden in the lofty atrium eventually grows but for now it somehow doesn't look quite right. The breakfasts were OK and we had some fruit one day and were offered a boiled egg another day. Perhaps we expected too much from the website but on the whole we felt that our experience was not as good as we might have expected.
