Room was nice and clean as you would expect. Breakfast was good if not a little manic due to the place being full. The staff we all helpful enough, eager to please and nice. Location is fine with good views out to sea. Good Value too
Hotel had a function on which lasted until 12:45 at night (music stopped at 12 but loud shouting didn’t!). Not excessively late but late enough to mean we couldn't get as good of a sleep as we would have liked. Hotel is too small for that size of function in my opinion. In fairness we were pre-warned that the restaurant would be shut so that's ok.
On check out day we finished breakfast around about 9:00am. Check out is at 10:30 so plenty of time. Having got back to our room just before 10:00 we received knocks on the door from the cleaning staff straight away, hurrying us up.... Didn't like this especially as there was cleaning stuff and dirty bedding scattered all over the landing making it like a Crystal Maze task to get out. I wouldn't have minded but there was no real attempt to make it easier for us as we came out.
Would I stay here again? Yes.... With a few tweaks it would be very good and I hope the hotel take note. I would of written this all down upon checkout within their feedback section, but didn't have time..... Cleaners!!
