Did not have a great start as our pre booked car parking space did not materialise and as my wife is disabled that was a major problem especially as it took some sorting out.
A better description for the hotel would be good rather than the very good, the room was nice but very noisy. The reception areas is decent as is the indoor swimming pool though rather on the small side.
Breakfast was very nice as was the evening meal that we partook of on one evening, very well presented and appetising.
The only issue that would prevent us staying here again is the location situated as it is on a hill albeit in the centre of the town and close to the pier, etc.
