We booked an all inclusive stay with dinner, bed & breakfast & spa treatment through a 3rd party agency. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful (the Night Porter was brilliant at breakfast, a real star as we had to get an early breakfast on the Sunday and he was so helpful). I read the reviews before I arrived and was of mixed opinion prior to arrival, there were elements of hilarity as the shower had very low power and the bath took 1hr to fill up but not enough to warrant a bad review at all, the room we had wasn't big but it was adequate for our needs and had everything we needed - iron & board, coffee/tea facilities, TV & wifi was excellent. One thing I would say is the en-suite didn't have a door on it, had this been the early days of my relationship I would have freaked at that lack of privacy! The weather was amazing over the weekend and yes the room got warm but we opened the window and just slept with a sheet. We had dinner which was of excellent quality and a good standard, the service was brilliant and good atmosphere in the bar/restaurant area. Our spa treatment was lovely (both had a Swedish Massage) and all in all we felt we had a great stay and you really do get what you pay for and we felt our stay was more than value for money. The lift wasn't working which was a pain especially as my partner had just ran the marathon and we were on the 3rd floor, so pretty uncomfortable for him especially the day after! Car parking - we did get a space but had to park out on the road for an hour or so until one became free (the surrounding area felt safe and not an issue leaving car outwith hotel car park). The spa was good, as were the facilities, however people are inconsiderate as there were lots of towels just dumped around which made it look untidy - but this is down to people being lazy & not putting towels in the bin provided or disposing of water cups. Great location for shops/promenade/beach (all easy walking distance) and all in all I would recommend to anyone wanting a good stay and if you get the deal we did is excellent value for money. We felt the staff tried hard to make your stay enjoyable, they all seemed to work extremely hard & were always very friendly.
