This hotel is really beautiful, very posh and the staff are so friendly and helpful! The room is so spacious and is great value for money. The hotel was easy to locate and has free parking on site. I really liked this hotel and would stay again

It was a shame about the scaffolding outside but it didn't effect our stay and was still a great view of the sea/beach. My only two issues would be is that the bathroom is very run down, there was some mold on the towel heater and the shower was difficult to work.

Amazing hotel with very friendly staff who cannot do enough for you. Had a couple of drinks in the bar which had a pionist that made it so relaxing. I would definitely recommend this hotel and cannot wait to book again

Room was a little bit dated but that doesn't bother me as it has loads of character

Excellent breakfast with lovely views from the dining room. Staff were friendly and helpful.

The bathroom was clean but looked in need of a refurbishment. Shower was lukewarm on my second morning.
