    Customer service was excellent and the hotel was lovely. We were very pleased and would definitely stay there again.

  • Single

    Easy access for most amenities. Good leisure club and bar

    Single rooms a bit small. Trying to fit too much into a small space.

    Its position in relation to amenities and places to visit. Good reliable standards. Very nice building. Friendly and helpful staff. B reakfast excellent except you kept running out of grilled tomatoes and the bacon was too undercooked, leaving soggy fat rind!

    Runing out of tomatoes and soggy bacon rind! The lighting in our room 12 was poor. One very dull overhead light and the bedside lamps didn't offer much light either. We thought the bath/shower was dangerous as the surface of the bath was smooth and slippy and the handles fitted only assited geeting into a bath as opposed to shower use. There was also no rubber bath mat, which would have helped. We feel this is outside of Health and Safety standards. Also we could not get a fine spray on the shower head, only a pulse power-shower.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    the staff were very courteous and facilities were excellent.

    restuarant meals were small for the price.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Convenient to walk to town and beach. Internet accessible computer in lobby was handy. Loved the spa so the weather did not spoil the day. Breakfast was good and vegetarian option available. Staff in restaurant, cleaners and reception very friendly and helpful.

    Something not right with the heating as extremely hot in the bedroom and corridors . Noisy outside our bedroom window ant night as we had to leave them open due to the heat....drunks and swearing unfortunately. Room 23

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The room was lovely and the food was good.

    The only incident that spoiled my stay was when I used the swimming pool and was enjoying a swim on my own , when a young waiter decided to lie on a lounger ina suggestive manner which made me feel uncomfortable , and therefore cut my swim short.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    The stand out feature of this comfortable hotel is the service. Every member of staff is friendly, helpful and genuinely concerned to make your stay a pleasant one. This is especially true of the restaurent where Nicky and his team are exceptional. The food too is wonderful. All in all a great place to stay.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Its in a good position near the BIC& Pavillion Theatres, near shops and close to beach.

    Not all rooms have baths, I had to pay extra to get a bath in an executive room - but was very nice room. Parking is limited and spaces very small - not great for a 4 wheel drive car. Many rooms face the main road and front of hotel which can be noisy from late night revelers returning home and dustbin lorries and hotel delivery's are also noisy.

  • Single
    9.4

    Very smart classical hotel. Plenty of friendly staff around.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Good locatioon, nicely decorated spotlessly clean room.

    Room was too hot and could not adjust temperature or open window very much!

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Sufficient and well trained staff in every department we came into contact with.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Efficient, friendly staff prepared to help with all occurrences. Excellent Spa staff, who went the extra mile to make things happen (Anna in particular) Only criticism; lunch time bar/restaurant staff appeared to be "overworked" but did their best to cover the numerous tasks expected of them

    Nothing really

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Good dining experiencies

    Car parking a bit tight
