From the time you enter this great majestic old school English hotel to the charming flowing entrance foyers to the most amazing welcome from the friendly staff and reception, we checked in and sat at the local watering hole for a thirst quencher, The Casurie Bar located inside the hotel, and enjoyed Mannie the barman. With our bags ported up to our rooms, we found ourselves in comfortable spacious bedrooms with welcome water and fruit upon arrival, lovely comfortable beds. The pillows need more firmness and the bathroom need an makeover. Morning breakfast was a feast buffet and enjoyed freshly brewed coffee and fruit juices. Well worth a visit. Charming old school English hotel. Stunning views of the ocean and beachfront promenade, a hive of activities for any tourist.
