My partner booked this hotel as a surprise birthday getaway following the reviews we found on here and we were not disappointed. On first impression the views from the hotel were amazing and parking was easy to acquire, up to 8 spaces off-street and plenty on street.
We booked room number 8 primarily for the view and the modern feel. The double bed was very comfy and there were plenty of wardrobe space to hang your clothes and the bathroom was particularly nice due to the large shower and ample space to get ready. The TV mounted on the wall, which could be viewed from the 2 chairs either side of the bed or lying on the bed, I preferred the latter. Sky TV was included with plenty of channel choices ( Movies & Sport Included) this was a god send when waiting for your other half to get ready.
In terms of the location, the beach front is on your doorstep and it was roughly a 5-10 minute walk to the Whale Bone Arch. I liked the quiet walk from the hotel to the centre as there were different routes, you could either go along the main road or walk down the footpath and along the beach.
There was excellent polite service at breakfast. You have the choice of either a full English breakfast or customised to whatever you prefer. Plenty of toast and as much jam, marmalade and honey you could imagine. Tea, coffee and fruit juice were available with cereals, grapefruit and yoghurts which were help yourself.
As the previous review states that they found the breakfast tasteless, in my opinion they couldn't be more wrong. The sausage and bacon was very good quality, as their website states they use a local butchers to supply meat. The sausage was made with herbs this accounts for the previous review, I thought it was very tasty and enjoyed it thoroughly. The tomatoes were grilled and the eggs could be cooked however you preferred them i.e. scrambled etc.
What i liked best about this hotel was the welcoming atmosphere, the beautiful breakfast and the great quiet location. The only criticism I can find is that for people who are not as good on their feet as me could find it difficult with the slightly longer walk into town.
All in All, excellent hotel, I would definitely recommend this to a friend and will be coming back very soon.
