We are currently staying.. staff members very lovely. The room 3 is very small with a 20month baby.. Other rooms are lovely but they were fully booked to be moved. Downstairs breakfast is nice. Situated in a lovely area.

Hotel was well situated for all amenities. Although the weather was not great while we were there (early October) we could see that it would be a good place to stay for a couple of nights. There was a nice lounge and welcoming reception area. Room 10 was one of the smaller rooms, and although cosy had everything you would...

Upon arrival I was really impressed by the welcoming and tidy appearance of the hotel and staff. After dropping our luggage off first impressions were really good and the sea view was fantastic from our room. It's when I moved into the bathroom and was greeted with a rather strange ammonia smell. Upon lifting the toilet seat it appears someone...

It is with great sadness I read your review. As you can see it is not in line with the majority. At no time did you inform a member of staff that there was a problem with the ensuite in your room. We can only resolve a problem if we know about it. I am sorry if the toilet had...

Breakfast was good although more fruit would have been nice. Had a excellent meal in the bistro as well. Staff were all lovely and...
