I've stayed here a few times in the past few years, and the rooms are getting nicer and better equipped with each visit. The views: impeccable. The reception is delightful and bend over backwards to ensure a fun and enjoyable experience. They even offer a small wing dining room where you can dine with your pet; as they are quite pet friendly. The dining room is small and a bit cluttered, but they make due, and it's all together gorgeous the way it's submerged in a garden setting. However, sadly the chef has a terrible temper, and it rubs off on the staff. For example I was in the restaurant one evening and I could here the echoes of him chewing out a staff member, then she emerged from the kitchen holding back tears. Unacceptable! I did some digging with the locals and found out he is quite notorious for his booming temper and isn't pleasant to work under. I hope he reads this and reconsiders his work ethic. It starts at the top then trickles down. The only reason my rating is shy a star is because of the clear need for a more friendly management in the back of the house. That being said the dining room manager is always kind and sets the mood for a lovely dinner. A lot of the great staff that were there a year or so ago have left. Possibly due to the head chef's tyranny. What happened to that cute and courteous bell boy, and the English sweetheart? Still there is no lack of friendly pleasant staff. Some of whom have been working there many years. It's very pleasant to see the staff is friendly not just with the guest, but also each other. All in all A beautiful, historical coastal location with an attentive caring staff; lest the chef.
