Wonderful location which the hotel makes the very best of. I imagine what ever time of year you visit the views will be breathtaking. Every member of staff (apart from 2 male waiters in restaurant overlooking terrace) were professional , helpful, courteous and friendly. The bed was one of the best I have ever slept in. The room and hotel is absolutely spotless and very comfortable. Unfortunately if we could have eaten elsewhere we would have. Undercooked or over cooked, greasy or dry the kitchen could not get it right. Very unpleasant food. Breakfast was the best meal but even then the eggs were not that good.
The two dishevelled male waiters were obviously recruited from macdonalds or Frankie and bennies. Food served and asked 'are you set' as if we were in a fast food race. They had missed the training the rest of the staff had received and were unsmilingly hurried and not very smart.
