This hotel is in a beautiful location with very helpful staff, in fact the receptionist assisted us in contacting a hotel we'd stayed in the night before to get some items we'd left behind returned. We also ate at the restaurant, which was very good, although it did get a bit warm. Finally the sunset was amazing.

We booked a room here at the very last minute on New Year's Eve which is the only reason I accepted the extremely overpriced charge for the room. We only just booked it before leaving home so didn't get a chance to see the room or what was in it. I had high expectations though, due to the horrendous price... More

Retirement age executive couple, picked this hotel from TA and were rewarded with a smart accommodation and really nice restaurant meal. The weather did not cooperate and, unfortunately, clouds masked what the postcards called the view. Away from the crowds, this was a nice one night stay on a three week trip.
