We first visited this hotel 11 years ago and found we had been assigned the same room. It was all much the same --- spacious room with sitting area, comfortable superking bed, plenty of cupboard space and a lovely sea view from the dual aspect windows. The bathroom was adequate with a shower over the bath and plenty of toilettries but could do with a lick of paint.My one criticism of the room was the various rugs scattered around which could be a trip hazzard for the more elderly of us!
The dining experience was rather different from our first visit. We have dined in Michelin restaurants in the past and the food at the Driftwood certainly lived up to expectations. However, is it necessary to describe in minute detail every ingredient in every course? Also, when dinner is £65 per head can it be justified to have a £5 supplement on several dishes. We were there for 3 nights and the menu was exactly the same each night. Breakfasts were very good, an excellent selection of cereals, fruits, yogurt and pastries with an interesting assortment of cooked dishes.
The staff were all very friendly and welcoming but it would have been nice to have seen the owners at some time during the evenings.More
