We were given an upgraded 'romantic' ground floor room right on the front so it was very easy to see when other whale watchers spotted one, grab the camera and run out. Mid Ocotober and we easily saw several whales each and every day of our 3 day stay.
Room very modern and newly furbished. Has a massive stone bath in the centre and is open plan to the basins and shower - not sure if this is what classifies it as 'romantic' - we are middle aged so maybe we are just 'past it'?
Reception staff always friendly and professional. Breakfast service 1 day was so abysmal as to be laughable, better on next 2 but did make us wonder if hotel was really worth the difference in price to an upmarket B&B.. We liked the central location - safe few steps walking to a variety of restaurants. Decor upmarket, quality and modern, but is it overpriced for what it is?
