Hotel has undergone refurbishment which has brought it up to a very good standard. Location is great with nearby beach (though the old works buildings let it down); golf course next door for those wanting it; spa area very nice too; staff helpful. However it still feels like a slightly old fashioned British seaside resort hotel - the draped curtains and green everywhere in the lounge cement that impression. Main gripes were view from the room - whilst well appointed, I paid £100 for inland view but got a massive pine tree which blocked out light and view of the utility area - would have expected better for this sort of money. Breakfast was good but was put off from trying dinner by a most unpleasant Chicken Caesar salad - mass of garlic which overpowered everything else, mass of raw mushrooms (an original addition!) to bulk it up and far too much over-ripe lettuce. Just think it needs to sharpen up a few areas before it really merits the 4 star status.
