This is a nice hotel and has a lot of good features but a bit of TLC is needed. Reception and first greeting very pleasant but I thought it very strange that you had to pay upfront before even seeing the room, the room wasn't ready as we were early so when we came back, the lady in reception gave...

We ordered our six dinners which were fine. Food good but then left for about 30 minutes sitting with all our dirty finished plates in front of us. No... More

Some years ago we drove past this hotel and admired its appearance and location so when we were in the area decided to stay for one night in a "superior " room with a sea view. We arrived at reception to be greeted by someone who looks like they should be working in a care home or cleaning staff as... More

For me the best thing about the evening was the Argentinian Malbec although even that turned out to be a disappointment as they only had one bottle of it! We turned up at 6:30 on the basis we had a 6 year old who needed feeding early. Starters started to come out an hour and fifteen minutes later and only... More

We booked 6 rooms for the Easter weekend and a table in the restaurant for Easter Sunday which was my wife's birthday. Despite having several months notice, the service was non existent. We sat down at 7.30 and were presented with a limited set 3 course meal rather than a la carte with no warning. Our mains arrived after about... More
