Staying at the Walpole Bay is a real privilege. It is not just their museum of years gone by but it is a wonderful experience to be pampered by Hotel staff as though you are the most important person in the world.
The only thing modern is free Wi-Fi. The rooms were clean and tastefully furnished in a way that may have reminded you of an old stately home because that is when I last saw so many pillows and cushions. The en suite Bathrooms have all those exciting little soap/shampoo bits but really nice ones!
The Walpole Bay is well located opposite the Bowling Club in a quiet road with plenty of car parking available. If there is one thing I would add, it is a washroom facility on the ground floor but I could forgive the Walpole Bay because it is just brilliant.
I chose the perfect evening to have dinner with fiends outside on the restaurant terrace. The food was delicious. We all had Mussels followed by Duck in Black Cherry sauce with lots of vegetables.The service was very friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. Its those little extras they do that mean so much to me: Like warming the fresh Rolls. I am that easy to please. It was really very good.
I loved it at the Walpole Bay and will be back
