We stayed here on two occasions. In 2012 the decor came as a bit of a shock - we considered moving on - old-fashioned damp wall-paper, grubby carpets, smell of stale food in the entrance hall. But the beautiful food and the views from the restaurant to the sea made up for it all. In 2013 same decor but the food very mediocre indeed - has to be a different chef. We don't expect haute cuisine, just well-prepared food. I'm afraid the waiting staff need a little bit of training. Our second course at breakfast was plonked on the table before we had finished the first. Where did the 4 stars come from?
