We have just returned from staying at this hotel for two nights. We got a deal on Travelzoo that included dinner and a glass of wine on the first night. There was a lovely welcome from the reception staff who gave us a little tour. Our room was lovely and had a balcony with table and chairs. We had a...

Always wanted to visit and took advantage of an offer to do so. The bedroom was clean but tending on the old-fashioned. The bathroom was nice but found the waterfall taps in the centre of the bath to be most awkward. Four of us ate Sunday Lunch which was disappointing. The beef was poor and my niece found a piece...

The hotel was clean and well maintained although during our visit renovations work where taking place on the Terrace but the disruption was minimal.We ate in the restaurant as we had a meal package which was good however the supplement on the cheese and biscuits was excessive for three slivers of...

Stayed here having purchased a wowcher deal. This was a one night stay with evening meal, glass of wine on arrival and breakfast. Excellent value for money, we were given a room on second floor with partial sea view, although room was on smallish side, the bathroom was big and very modern, no complaints as the room had all we...

Stayed here in a wowcher deal, excellent room, evening meal was to a very high standard, try the Chicken Supreme! Our deal included a glass of wine available until 6pm on the day of arrival and breakfast. The breakfast had the much commented "half a mushroom", but didn't detract from the superb location and staff. The pool wasn't open, but...

Wowcher break, bed, breakfast and evening meal. Arrived at Hotel and received an upgrade to the apartments which where really lovely. Reason was pool closed. Not worried as weather not so good for swimming outside anyway. Fantastic food for evening and breakfast and fantastic service on reception and in the restaurant. Will go back when all the work is done...

This hotel is in an idyllic setting, slightly spoiled during our visit by extensive building work. The hotel is well run and the food in both restaurants is top quality, the breakfasts excellent, but the wine in the main restaurant was very expensive. The room was small and basic and being so close to the sea it was disappointing to...

I booked the hotel through Wowcher for my partners birthday as I have used the restaurant and spa previously with a great experience. When booking online and over the phone I was never informed of the large scale building work on site, this meant there was drilling etc. However I will say the hours of work were around 8-5pm so...

It's great to read about all the positive aspects of your stay and your comments regarding the meal and waiter will get passed along. Our superior rooms are of a smaller size which is why the supplement price is reduced however we hope you enjoyed the stunning balcony and sea views that come with this, hopefully the weather allowed you...
