Very pleasant hotel with excellent food & service

Posted 06-Dec-2016
Pros: Room standard and location. Food excellent.
Cons: Nothing
Location: NA to our stay.
Just spent three days at this very good hotel which has an excellent location. The ambience and décor are pleasing. The room we had with a sea view was well placed, reasonably large and had a good bathroom and was quiet. The food and all service was excellent. We will definitely stay here again!

Stepping back in time ...

Posted 17-Oct-2016 on Hotels
Check-in: I arrived early, and checked in at 2.30pm. The receptionist said my bag would be delivered to my room, but that didn't happen. I finally retrieved it from behind the porter's desk six hours later. Room service: Good. Sandwiches arrived promptly. Garden room service: I waited about an hour for a jacket potato with tuna topping and a side salad. The second day, had lunch with friends in the main restaurant where the service was fine.

Historic charm, beautiful sea views, lovely staff, and lovely return guests who return yearly and are friendly to newcomers. Enticing croquet lawn, swimming pool, warm sea breezes. Delightful.

Hydro needs to up its game

Posted 30-Aug-2016 on Hotels
The room was uncomfortably hit and all windows shut in this un airconditioned room. Insufficient tea and milk. We had to ask and it was not later replenished. Our daughter was covered in bites over both nights. Finally, our blank credit cards swipes showed up later as debits that are still not voided. We have used the Hydro before but this will be our last time.

Quiet clean and charming - but...

Posted 23-Jun-2016 on Hotels
old fashioned hotel - clearly aimed at the "elder" generation - quiet, clean and charming - but just as the hotel itself is a little "old fashioned" - so it seems are the ideas of punctuality and service from the staff...
