What can I say?!
This place was MAGNIFICENT! Having read some of the reviews on this place, you would think I was taking my life in my hands going there!
We went on a trip with Caledonian Travel for the September weekend and it was just awesome. We were in a tiny twon room on the 4th floor with a wee window overlooking the sea.
The rooms were well appointed, warm and quiet. The shower was about 1.5x the size of a normal shower with lots of hot water and decent pressure.
I thik our corridor had been freshly refurbished, as the carpets and decor were lovely, and there were still some rolls of carpets in the foyer awaiting attention.
The staff were exceptional - very friendly and always eager to please. Special mentions to both the wine waiter and the lady who seats you at dinner.
The bar and sun terrace were the perfect tonic on the balmy nights, with a £1.50 happy hour 12-7 and the house wine (a decent tipple) being £8 a bottle.
The setting was the most beautiful I have seen in a hotel and could easily have been about ten times the price we paid!
Both breakfast and dinner were buffet style, with beautiful views over the South Bay. Some people may complain at buffet dining, but I thought it was great as you didn't feel guilty going up for seconds or avoiding sprouts!!
All in all a fabulous hotel, in one of my favourite towns. I'm so glad I finally got to stay there, and it won't be the last time!!
