My husband & I returned last night from the Corona. I always read reviews on Tripadvisor before I book any accommodation & was very impressed with the rave reviews the Corona had so did not hesitate in booking.
Firstly, the location is excellent. Away from the total buzz & noise but near enough for a nice walk if that's where you want to be. Also very easy to find.
The outside of the Corona looks very inviting. On arrival at reception we were greeted by Paul - check in was swift & welcoming. First impressions were excellent.
We had room 16 which was on the top floor - had everything we needed & was brightly decorated & spotless. The bed/pillows were sooooo comfortable & we had a good sized bathroom with toiletries & lovely, fluffy towels. Refreshments tray.
After a great night's sleep we headed down to the breakfast room which is really bright & welcoming. The breakfast was delicious, freshly cooked & plentiful. Grapefruit segments, prunes, a good variety of cereals, yoghurts, fresh fruit & scrummy little muffins/flapjacks all on the buffet cabinet. There was a menu with a wide choice of hot breakfast food - full English, kippers, beans on toast etc. etc.
The waitresses/waiter were absolutely charming. Very friendly & efficient.
We also availed of the bar services while we were there. The bar (like absolutely all areas of the Corona) was bright, welcoming, beautifully decorated. Drink was VERY reasonably priced. The bar has patio doors which lead onto a quiet, enclosed area which is fenced all round with plenty of tables/chairs - lots of flowers in tubs etc - really lovely.
Paul & Richard were charming hosts. They have obviously worked very hard to bring the Corona up to 1st class standard & were there to give information should it be required.
Of course there is another member of staff who was absolutely BEAUTIFUL & even has his own staff badge - none other than Reece. A beautiful, friendly boy with huge eyes & long, floppy ears - if Paul & Richard had turned away for a second, I'd have had Reece in my suitcase!!!!
After we checked out, Paul was kind enough to show us some of the other rooms - they are all individually decorated & the deluxe rooms are to die for!!!! The whole place smacks of class.
Thank you guys for making us so welcome - it was our wedding anniversary, which is why we were there & being in such a lovely place with such nice hosts just made our special time even more special.
I would not hesitate in returning to the Corona & would highly recommend to friends, family & anyone who reads this review.
