We stayed in July and had a room with a view to die for but that was about it. The food was good but being in johansens hotel guide we were expecting 5 star luxury and the rate of £215 per night was steep. There seemed to be lots of people in some places and no one in others. I had to tell the receptionist that the ladies loo could do with attention, obviously not inspected recently. Lots of staff in the dining room and it would seem to be the main business of the hotel. The hotel has all the ambiance and looks the part but does not seem to have a heart and someone overseeing things. It seemed as though the hotel, in high season, was running on a skeleton staff. A nice break but we paid a lot less for a b&b in Beer and everything there was top notch. Just can't put my finger on what was not quite right. The cracked basin in our en-suite was a bit grotty and trying to flush the loo, which was apparently new, needed two hands to flush. A chocolate each on the day of arrival - only a small thing but for the price how about a choc in the room every other night? The bottle of chilled water at night was greatly appreciated.
