My boyfriend booked this hotel as a surprise for my birthday. On arrival, we were upgraded, which was a lovely surprise. The man on reception was very knowledgeable and welcoming. First impressions of the hotel were excellent. The decor is lovely; a lot of thought has obviously gone into creating a relaxing ambience. We had room 10. It wasn't huge but this was forgiven when we saw the beautiful view. I was a little disappointed that there wasn't a bath however the shower room was lovely, very clean. The temperature of the shower was hot, very hot or super hot. Even on the lowest setting it was verging on unpleasant. We had a lovely evening meal at Plato's (highly recommended) and returned around 10.30pm. There was very little noise from the other guests so falling asleep wasn't a problem. Staying asleep however was. The room was so hot and the bed creaked at the slightest flinch. This became very annoying, very quickly. At 7.30am we gave up and got ready for breakfast. The service was efficient and friendly, We both had a full English; the scrambled eggs were superb! I noticed a couple of things that I think could be improved. 1. Better lighting and 2. Background music. As the only people in there it seemed rather lifeless. Checking out was easy and the receptionist was very friendly. Overall, a lovely stay. We found this hotel excellent. It is beautifully decorated and the staff are great. We would definitely return.
