Booked three rooms for a special occasion weekend - double with terrace, double with balcony and twin. The twin was the most modern and looked good. The terrace room was dated and a bit of a disappointment, but at least the view was great and we were all able to sit outside there as long as it wasn't too windy. The other double was upgraded to a suite, which was spacious and had interesting furniture, stereo system, two tv's and a mini fridge. Unfortunately, the bed was extremely hard and it was a relief to get up in the morning!
Breakfast was good, as was dinner in the Ventana restaurant, although quite pricey. The location is ideal, although we had to park on the road the first evening and then in the hotel next door, never quite managing to park in the car park at the hotel we were actually in until we loaded the car to leave!
I'd be tempted to return but for the uncomfortable bed and the feeling that it wasn't great value for money at over £400 for two nights B&B.
