We have just returned from a two night stay. We love and cannot fault the location, it's our go to area to get away for R & R, and the sea view rooms, following their recent refurb are very good.
The food is very good and with enough choice to suit our tastes, the portions are only just large enough to not be called small, but only just. The coffee at breakfast is very weak, we like our coffee and we like it strong, even when we asked for strong coffee we were still served a weak brew, its a small thing but for coffee drinkers the morning coffee at breakfast is very important.
Although breakfast it till 10.00hrs, if you would like to have a croissant you need to be there before 09.00hrs, I asked 2 members of staff about the lack of croissants and received bland mumblings that there were croissants available earlier!! We arrived for breakfast at 09.10hrs.
The service is still hit and miss in the restaurant, long waits between courses (35 mins on our first night) having to ask for water or bread or toast twice. It does let the hotel down.
It was also disappointing to be told the pool was unavailable to guests during certain times each day as the local swimming clubs use it, this should be clearly explained when you book.
The door slamming is a problem as a previous reviewer states and I would hazard a guess that it is probably the children who are running along the corridors and slamming the doors.
Summary, location is clearly superb, service is still hit and miss.
