We wanted an overnight stay after disembarking from the Brittany Ferry at 21:30, and this could not be more convenient. We were celebrating an anniversary, so we treated ourselves to a "master double" room, booking via Booking.com. The room we were allocated (416) was better than we could have wished for, with a huge bed (2 standard singles pushed together but with bedding across both), and a separate lounge area. It was clean, plush and well decorated. They have clearly sorted out the problems with this room (see review by Trish K). Our only regret was that we were not able to spend more time in the room! The bathroom fittings are ultra modern - in fact I felt that in the case of the shower the design seemed to be higher priority than the function, as you cannot direct the large overhead shower as you may wish. I liked the respect for the old and traditional, such as the William Morris repro wallpaper in the reception and stairwells, together with the modern touches in the bathroom. Breakfast was very good, freshly cooked. However, it finished at 09:30, which we felt was a bit early for some tourists. We got there around 09:00 and the staff were already laying up for lunch. Everything was still available even after 09:30, and was good, but I sensed they were happy once we had vacated so they could get on. The staff were friendly efficient , and overall we felt we had a very good experience.
