This hotel is situated in a fantastic place,the view does not get much better.On our arrival at the hotel we were greeted by friendly staff,rooms were available from 3pm.The outside of the hotel looks a little tired and could do with a lick of paint,inside is a little dated ,but there were decorators working whilst we were there.We were on the third floor without a sea view,this was not a problem as upgrades were available.This hotel does not have a large lift,it only fits 2 people in with small cases,which can be a problem if booking in with a large party.Be patient.We were in rooms 315 and 319 these rooms were very spacious,clean and looked like they had been spruced up a bit.Not bad at all we were quite pleased after reading rubbish reports...Dinner was nice,the food nicely cooked and the waiters did an excellent job,nothing was too much trouble.My mum has a gluten free diet,on our arrival arrangements had been made for her to discus her diet..this was excellent,making mums trip a bit more relaxed knowing the chef actually understands the importance of gluten free diets.Breakfast was also of good quality and choice,service was as good as the evening meal,with pleasant staff throughout our stay.In the evening there was no entertainment on,this was a bit of a let down but we walked down into the center,the walk is fine going down but a bit of a hike back if your not very fit.Taxi cost £4.20 ,worth it..For the amount we paid for bed,breakfast and evening meal we could not fault it and would recommend it to any average person,who does not expect 5* from a 3* hotel.We will be going back.
