      Good stay

      Overall pleased with the stay. Was told by Hotels.com that we were to be given a room with a sea view but this was not forthcoming when we picked up the keys. Bit annoyed at the time but in the end pleased that we stayed in the room at the rear as it was quiet and a good sleeping room. Breakfast was very good and hit the spot. Nice hotel with good lounge area, although the wi-fi was not available in the room and even poor in the lounge.
