4/5 Good

Great dining,

Left to take our own luggage to room. No concierge. Parking arrangements not explained beforehand and residents didn’t use allocated bays. Dining was excellent and compensated for Front-of-house failings.

5/5 Excellent

Fabulous central location though also very quiet. The staff were exceedingly helpful. There was a problem with accessing the car park. The phone/gate system did not work well and involved standing in the rain unable to get out of the car park!

3/5

The room was exceedingly warm with no means of lowering the temperature to below16 Celsius. The car park needed a phone so coming from Canada that was expensive. However we were given a fob to use later. The staff were really accommodating especially as there had been a mistake made with dates. I would recommend this hotel as long as a sea view room is booked. Town view rooms are very noisy.

4/5 Good

Nice sea views. Stayed on the top floor, noise from the roof bar was a bit much and noise from people getting out of the lift on our floor and going up the stairs.

3/5

The hotel was nicely decorated and furnished with style as you would expect with a hotel of this standing but the communication from the staff was lacking. We had emailed to say that we would book in earlier in the day but we would not return until after midnight. The room was not ready when I came to book in and the receptionist was surprised as she understood we weren't booking in until after midnight. When we did return at night the door was locked and we had not been given instructions how to gain entry. This was finally resolved but could have been avoided. Breakfast the following morning was disappointing as it was barely warm. Overall could and should have been better.
