Gota say - research pays off. The reviews you read here are true. This hotel was excellent. Set in a beautiful bay, right up against the sea wall walk way alongside great restaurants (see review for Crap Shack and Pizza Express). There was only a slight delay getting into the room (we needed the rest owing to the early hours flight). We found reception to be most helpful every time we needed them. The room (412) was at the rear (I just couldn't get a sea view one as it was fully booked). Quiet main road outside presented no noise issue at all. The room was a quirky layout (top floor) but very well appointed - tidy and clean - fresh starched sheets (beautiful to slip in between). Great shower (pressure) and refreshments provided. TV adequate channels.
Restaurant (we used this on our 2nd night - had to book) has a balcony section running the length which provides stunning views of the bay right on the sea wall walk way. The breakfast was cereal or cooked full (plenty of fresh hot food all the time). the evening meal menu changes each night and there is a swap over option (pick and mix with a small charge). the food was excellent - can't fault it in any way. the fish you just know was fresh that day caught. Quality wine selection too.
The bar remained open (for the football) and was well stocked. For those of you that have a later departure, there is a guest shower facility should you use the beech after you've left your room.
The staff were fantastic. Multi lingual and always happy to go that extra mile to make your stay the best it can be.
If i had any criticism at all it would be that the corridors on the top floor were stifling hot in the evening and I suspect that the storage heaters were not adjusted for the brilliant weather we had.
