This short break proved very enjoyable. We booked late and the only way they could accommodate us was for us to change rooms during our stay. This was no problem as the staff did everything for us. Both rooms 25 and 4 had sea views and could not be faulted, Both rooms were spacious and clean.
The breakfast was always hot and plenty of choice, amount and good quality produce.
The evening meals were sublime, this chef would hold his own in any five star establishment. We had a meal on the first night intending to eat out in the evenings for the rest of our stay, however the quality and presentation was to such a high standard that we stayed in for the evening meals and did not regret this choice. The quality could not be beaten and was certainly reasonably priced and the presentation of the food would put an artist to shame.
All the staff were pleasant and helpful throughout our stay.
We are looking forward to returning in the future and would recommend without hesitation.
