We arrived at the hotel just as a beautiful bride was getting her photos taken in the recently refurbished garden(so we were told). We had an attic room - I was a bit apprehensive about the room as I had read a few of the other reviews but we were pleasantly surprised. The room was spotless, the sloping ceilings didn't bother us as waking up & looking out the velux window to a sea view was just perfect. With it being an attic room we were up & out the way so it was nice & quiet having the kids, there was only 1 other room across from us. The hotel is only 50/60 yards from the beach, again ideal for the kids.
The hotel was very busy with there being a wedding on but it was good that the staff did not concentrate on just the wedding guests. You go to some places & wedding guests seem to take precedence over the hotel guests - this did not happen here, thank you.
The meals in the Vista restaurant were just about the best meals we have had in hotels. I had the Rabbies Chicken - chicken with haggis neeps & tatties with a whisky sauce over the top. The kids wolfed the burgers down & my wife said the risotto was the best she has ever tasted. Breakfast in the morning was very good as well - more haggis...MMmmmm!!
The staff were all excellent - nothing was too much trouble & they went out their way to make you feel very comfortable - as if you were at home. You can certainly tell this is a family run business.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone & we will certainly return to this little diamond on the beach.
