We arrived on Easter Monday for a 1 night relaxing break. Unfortunately it wasn't very relaxing. We arrived at 1pm and were told that we couldn't check in until 3 or 3.30! We went to a nearby shopping centre, had lunch & a look around & thankfully our room was ready when we returned. The room was fine, average size... More

The room was fine but the bathroom was in need of a bit of TLC. The grouting on the tiles needed to be refreshed and... More

My wife & stayed for two nights in this hotel - from the moment we arrived - the head receptionist Shauna looked after us in an exceptional friendly and professional manner. We had a very adequate smallish room looking out over the sea. Food in hotel was off a good standard and service in all areas - restaurant/bar/housekeeping etc was... More

Very busy on arrival as there was a function , and with the Spa opposite, the carpark was almost impossible, however check in was quick and the receptionist polite and helpful.Room was spotless, and there is a lift. Stunning view of the mornings sunrise and small lake. Food was very, very good and the service was swift. Would stay again.

On arrival at reception the dark haired lady only welcomed us with "name please" and would you like to pay now or on departure? No mention of bday or room upgrade.
