We stayed for three nights in a very spacious and airy room (room 2). The hotel is situated in a great location, the beach and golf course both walkable distances.

Nice local area. The hotel is conveniently sited for a number of local attractions.Good breakfast. Accommodation mid level but expensive. Reasonable restaurant which was also a bit over priced. The local area has a number of good pubs that offer good food and may be a better value alternative for dining out.

The food and staff were excellent. The lounge, dining room and the ladies loo are beautifully decorated, although our room seemed to have been half updated - the furniture was fine, comfortable bed, bathroom nice tiling, but the carpet was a disgrace. We were surprised to find no telephone in the room (although probably not vital when everyone has a...

We last visited this hotel several years ago and we won't be leaving it that long before we go back again! Reasonable room which was very clean. The restaurant and residents lounge have been refurbished and look great. The food in the restaurant was extremely good and all the staff were very helpful and professional. Thanks for a great stay.
