On arrival to the hotel we was greeted by the very friendly staff who processed our booking in a very professional manner, they were very polite. As we were not staying in the main hotel they got us the complementary transport to take us to the annex building, which appeared to be quite new. On arrival there we was greeted by the concierge who showed us to our room and explained all that we had in our room and said if we needed anything else to just ask and he would sort for us. I would recommend to all

We only stayed one night and were in the new part ‘the Keep’. Room was very nice and clean and staff were very pleasant. The only down side was that by the time we checked in we had a choice of breakfast at 7.45am or 9.45am. The latter being way too late if you need to get o. The road for a long journey.

There were elements of my stay I thought were very good, it’s in a great location near the sea, however for the amount paid for a three night stay the breakfast wasn’t the greatest, we stopped in the keep so not in the main hotel which wasn’t explained when we first booked, the bar in the keep I didn’t rate it’s more like an office desk with someone popping out to get a bottle of warm beer for 4 pounds, (the cheapest they had) I felt it was more corporate the facilities rather than a hotel. The hot tub wasn’t working in spa which was disappointing and I’d love to say sitting out on the balcony was a pleasure but it wasn’t as our table and chairs hadn’t been cleaned and were covered in bird excretion and cigarette ash. Just not that impressed for 240 pounds per night.
