Weekend treat

Was a nice weekend treat but it just lacked the ‘wow’ factor that you get with other high end establishments. It was expensive for what you get.

Lovely location

Very nice hotel and restaurant located on Penarth seafront. We had a very comfortable stay and enjoyed our time in Penarth. If you wish to eat at the restaurant you should book a table at least a month in advance. I didn’t and disappointingly the restaurant was fully booked. We now have an excuse to return! No WiFi signal in our room (5)
