I have to say our trip did not get off to a good start. We arrived excited for our experience which was a Christmas present and had to wait over an hour for our room. However, the woman at reception was very apologetic and even as we left she apologised again explaining they were one house keeper down. When we arrived in our room it was spotless until we saw a half drunk glass of blackcurrant on the side but this was where the negatives ended!
The room was warm (storms on the island have been dreadful so this was a real plus!). The bathroom and bath were one of the best we have had and as people who frequent hotels for weekend breaks this is saying something. The bath seemed to fill with water of a perfect temperature and was absolutely huge. The bed was really comfortable and we slept soundly both nights. The TV had a wide range of channels and the tea and coffee making facilities were good.
We ate an evening meal and breakfast in the restaurant. The breakfast was 5 star quality as good as at Hiltons we have stayed at. Evening food is pub grub and very good value.
Communal areas were very well furnished.
Would I stay again? Yes definitely!
