Location: Not perfect for getting into town, but absolutely wonderful for Porthminster Beach. Do beware that the walk to town is downhill, which of course means that the walk back to the hotel is uphill and could be a struggle for some.
Room: It appears that they are refurbishing some rooms in the hotel. We got a refurbished room which was very nicely done, but was in a strange part of the hotel. It almost felt like a basement (lots of stairs to get to it!) and had no view what-so-ever. The window was actually textured glass so you couldnt see out or in. We peeked in one of the sea view rooms and they were more dated, but better location. So take your pick.
Etc: The pool was under construction and the fitness centre was closed. If this is important to you, you may want to check to see if these are open before you visit.
