There's a reason why they provide a courtesy bus
There can be advantages, staying in a hotel on the outskirts of the town, as you don't get disturbed by noise etc - but when it's at the top of a very steep hill, you either need to clock-watch to make sure you're in time for the free half hourly shuttle bus service (until 7pm), or you need to be prepared for an uphill hike to get back to your room. That said, it was a pleasant walk in the sunshine, and we only used the bus one day out the five that we were there.
There was live entertainment laid on every night in the large bar - this might appeal to lots of you, but we avoided this like the plague and headed to the adults only lounge bar for a bit of peace and quiet - didn't stay there too long as the doors to the garden were open to allow the smokers to share their fumes with those of us sitting inside. Preferred to go back to our room and watch BBC1 (no telly when there was a storm one night, but OK the rest of the time) and catch up on reading some good books. Sorry if this sounds like we are boring and antisocial, but we didn't want to go to loud, smoky bars.
Food for brekkie and evening were good, but we had some great lunches out in the local or other bays' restaurants, so we ended up just having salad or soup towards the end of our stay.
Arrival & departure were great; checked in before 2pm so unpacked and went out for lunch (welcome after an early morning flight) and were given a courtesy room to use for half an hour before we left for a late flight home.
