This was our third stay at Driftwood and was as good as ever. The staff have the wonderful ability, and excellent training no doubt, to enable them to be very friendly and relaxed but always provide top rate service. On one evening there was an obnoxious and loud guest at a table who insisted on quizzing his waiter about his personal and career life. This was dealt with with great charm and courtesy.
We tried a new room this time, upstairs over the bar. Although it was in the lowest category we thought it was delightful. The views are superb, the bed a delight, the radio on quietly on playing classical music when we arrived. The bathroom was small but perfectly OK. We'd happily go back there again.
One night we had the tasting menu with wines - not cheap, but really excellent. It didn't help our ability to have a 10 mile walk the next day though! Our next meal had one or two items we weren't so keen on but maybe a matter of choice. It was sunday night ? whether the main chef was on. Breakfast gorgeous.
We will go back as soon as we can. A real treat.
