We stayed for 3 nights for my friends 50th (she had been a few times before). We had 2 nights in the very cute "Dolphin" house before moving to the main hotel for one night.
It was very picturesque & staff were all friendly but, there wasn't a great deal to do. Why were there no cute coffee shops & home made cakes, nowhere nice to have a glass of wine. So much could have been done here but it seems they've given up.
For the birthday night we asked for a nice table in the hotel & they'd forgotten even though we'd emailed in advance. The hotel itself needs some love, the furniture was tatty, no atmosphere in the bar etc.
Overall we had fun but were disappointed over what we paid. No need to return for sure.
