Fantastic location, good food and excellent staff. Room (number 300) was OK, but a little hot as was in the roof space, at the hight of summer this would be a bigger issue. The room was behind "the Grand Hotel" lettering and birds nested at night on the supports, so you could not leave the window open for ventilation without the fear of a bird in your room, or the noise that they make.
Even in taking into account the comments made, the location is just fab and I would love to stay there again! I would also be keen to treat my family over a weekend, although the price is an issue. At £55 B&B it is good value, but at say £240 per night for a family of four it is out of our reach (£1680 for a week). We have just stayed in a four star hotel Half board in Portugal for £283 for 5 nights for 3 people!!!! This is the problem that all UK hotels face.
