Just back from a one night stay at hotel, a very reasonable £90 DBB for two.
Staff: 8/10, a 10/10 for the restaurant staff - helpful, attentive and efficient while the reception staff was more "clinical".
Food: diner: 10/10, 3 course meal to be chosen from a la carte menu (supplement for beef), everything perfect from salmon platter to meringue and berries/cheese selection via salmon/chicken and vegetables. Breakfast: 8/10, slightly let down by the sausage, not up to the quality of the haggis/black pudding and bacon...
Room: 7/10, very clean, T&C facilities, large plasma TV,iron and board making it slightly above average. However, location of room (ground floor facing car park/bins), bathroom (shower only), temperature (a bit cold when not under the duvet), contributed to lower the rating.
Hotel location: 8/10, 2 mns from the beach and coastal walk path, 10 mns from town center. Minor downsides: proximity of pubs and "corner shops".
Overall: 8.75(!)/10. Will definitely be recommending hotel to friends and might even go back myself (booking a 1st floor sea view facing room).
A special thanks to our great friends (J&W) for arranging the bottle of champagne waiting for us in the room.
Suggestions (in no particular order): newspapers available from hotel or on guests' order, toilet brush, laundry bags to be removed from corridor.
