Splurged on a seaview deluxe double room and wow was it a special treat ! Enormous room - many hotels would have called it a junior suite as it had a separate seating area in front of the large flat screen TV. But the best bit was, there was a hot tub for two in the bedroom ! How wonderfully decadent we felt looking out to sea whilst sitting in a steaming hot hot tub!
Comfy big bed. Walk in closet area. Shower made for two. MP3 docking station. Private balcony for two overlooking the sea. Big floor to ceiling windows so room was light and airy.
Lovely room service staff (you didn't expect us to leave our room surely!?!) - and don't be put off by the very limited room service menu, the reality is that when you phone them, you can have anything off of the main restaurant menu too (and the food we had at dinner was good).
Communal areas - very grand, you half expect Agatha Christie to walk by !
What could they do better - only two things I think. First, staff at reception were a bit grumpy. Secondly, the breakfast (all self-service from a buffet) was a bit ordinary.
Over all though, a lovely treat.
