We stayed five nights as it was our base for seeing the island and all it had to offer. The rooms were comfortable and both breakfast and diner were excellent. You had to book for dinner in the evening as it was always busy . It's not the kind of place you can just drop by and get a table....

Having stayed here numerous times over the last 15 plus years it is good to see some modernising happening. The bedrooms still have an older feel to them with brown furniture and the bathrooms being panelled in Formica but the beds now have duvets which is a welcome change to my last visit. The restaurant and bar are good with...

I found this hotel to be excellent for my needs as part of a business trip, the staff were very polite and friendly, the facilities very good, and the food superb. The restaurant and bar area were of a particular high standard.

We ( a party of 10) despite arriving in the morning, were able to check into our rooms. While we waited, we had a lovely freshly cooked breakfast, served by welcoming staff. The food was excellent for all 4 breakfasts we had, and one dinner. The bar was well stocked, and all the staff we met were friendly and helpful....

Decided to have a 'child free' night here with my wife for a quiet meal. Could not fault the setting, service or food. Ended up having 3 courses and could hardly move afterwards. Great restaurant for families, groups or couples as it is well set out and doesn't feel like one big room.

The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful during our stay. Hotel Looks plain from the outside but rooms are clean, if small, and communal areas are nicely decorated. Bar well stocked especially if you like gin and whisky. Restaurant was ok but not that special for prices, however we did arrive late during the Monday of Up...

Lovely people, nice atmosphere, professional staff, good restaurant, sub-standard rooms. The hotel lies just a short walk from city center, Seaside rooms have a beautiful view.However, if windy those rooms can be quite noisy.
