On arriving we were greeted by the friendliest receptionist, she showed us where everything was & really was polite, professional and friendly.
Our room was 308 - a family room with a sea view, the room was spotless, the bathroom looked like it new as it was gleaming. The room was big, and a travel cot had been provided for our 20 month old son. The room was just the right temp, not too hot or too cold.
The pool was open til 7.30pm or 8pm (cant remember now) and we were advised no restrictions on time for our little boy which was great, we did have the pool to ourselves and the pool area was very clean, lockers just at the pool side which was handy. The pool itself was lovely and warm.
The breakfast was lovely, waited service so you even have your cereal brought to you, the cooked breakfast was just the right size, my other half can eat a nice hearty breakfast and we usually choose buffet style but even said this was just right, left you full & ready for the day.
The cliff lift was a nice novelty, although the walk down the cliff would be nice if the weather was a little warmer. We walked into the town centre from the hotel - took all of 10 mins - just a few streets away.
Parking was just on the street outside the hotel, we were given a parking permit
We will deinitely revisit this hotel, due to a family illness we did have to checkout in a rush which meant a few items of clothing were left behind, the hotel posted these to us the very next day.
