Arrived at the hotel and got parked easily as it has got a long driveway with ample space. We were greeted by John with a very warm welcoming and he took time to talk to us about places of interest and things to do which we thought was a very nice touch. He gave us some leaflets and a map for the area and circled the places we asked about. The room (number 2) was to a good standard and looked recently refurbished (apart from the carpet which was a bit worn/dated...a new carpet would have completed the refurbishment nicely, also in the main hallway. The en-suite bathroom was to a high standard and was clean with branded toiletries and nice white towels. The room was cleaned and tidied daily and toiletries, coffee/tea, biscuits, bottled water was replaced daily. We had a problem with the kettle which was sorted straight away. Compliments to the chef on the cooked Full English breakfast we chose everyday, we thought it was very nice. We enjoyed the fresh orange juice, tea and coffee and were offered more toast. The only thing we could say to improve on the breakfast was hash browns and asked how we wanted our eggs. There was a small bar area available and you could sit outdoors on the patio to enjoy your drinks (although we would have liked to have had a greater selection of wine, we enjoy zinfandel Rose and there was no Rose wine available just white or red).
The location of this hotel was perfect for us, it is a short walk away from the beach, harbour and restaurants. On departure both John and Sonia came to thank us for staying and see us out which we thought was a nice touch.All in all we were very happy with our choice of hotel and although we have mentioned a few minor areas to improve we still think that this hotel was a pleasure to stay in and would like to thank John and Sonia for being great hosts. We would definatley visit again in the future.
