Paid parking! Never had that before. Reception area nice, clean and tidy. Receptionist was polite and explained everything clearly. The room!!!! No aircon, dirty valence on the bed, no fridge, creaky floorboards outside the room, lift to the 4th floor not working, don’t bother with breakfast, slow is not the correct word to use. After waiting an hour and after reminding the waitress we still hadn’t had our breakfast she went to check then returned to say we were top of the list and would be less than 5 minutes. When the breakfast came it was obvious it had been on the pass for ages and then warmed again before serving. Cold eggs, soggy muffin and wet cold spinach makes for a very disgusting eggs florentine. Charged at £15 pp. Overpriced hotel, very dated, plenty of staff who really don’t know what they are doing.

Would have been a stunning place 40 years ago, not sure the owners realise is is now 2021. When you pay the kind of prices they are asking for I definitely expect a lot more. Very disappointing experience.

Second time I have stayed in this hotel and was very disappointed by the room. This was a courtyard view room, very dated , bed was uncomfortable so I was happy we stayed only one night. Old fashioned bathroom, toilet water kept leaking after being flushed. I stayed in a sea view room before which was great. But the standard room is not worth the money you pay for.

Hotel had good sized rooms, with fantastic views over the bay. Having a terrace was definitely worth paying the extra.
