Amazing location overlooking bay with direct access onto coastal path. Beautiful . The public lounges were lively with views of garden and bay. However the decor of bedroom tired and need refurbishing. Bed needs replacing

We had a fantastic sea view overlooking the lovely hotel gardens and terrace. The breakfast was delicious including their own granola. I have to eat dairy free food and all the staff worked hard to insure that my food was dairy free yet still incredibly delicious. Highly recommend this hotel. A short walk to the beach which is rocky but quiet so do take appropriate shoes!

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Location was great. Rooms are very old and not very clean. Beds were not very comfortable(cheap mattresses). Staff at kitchen were very helpful, but they were understaff. We were waiting for breakfast for more than half an hour. Parking was full they guided us to park somewhere else, but we found that was a private property! No heating. When we asked the manager told us it’s summer and we cannot turn the heating on even if it’s cold! Finally. He gave us an electric heater reluctantly.
