My friend stays here annually for the airshow and wanted me to experience the charm of the hydro and she was right. A spotlessly clean hotel in a great setting high on the hill. Parking easy in surrounding streets. Cases taken immediately by friendly porter. Reception very slow and 'relaxed' . Not as slick as the high tech modern hotels but polite and friendly. Room o erlooking sea spotless and extremely comfortable. Windows that open which I love. The furnishings are not modern but the cleanliness makes up for that, plus the tranquility and mar ellous unspoilt view of tne sea.
Ate lunch in the crystal restaurant. Very good value and charming, old fashioned service from the restaurant staff. Breakfast was outstanding. Locally sourced bacon and sausages plus superb service. Lounge and conservatory area do remind me of a bygone era but so relaxing and peaceful. Most of the guests are of the silver variety but for us that was a bonus. Not a hotel for those in a hurry, but loved the atmosphere and will be returning in the next few weeks with my elderly mum who I know will love it.
