We stayed for a weekend in an Ensuite 'Beach' Hotel room and our friends stayed in the nearby Seaside Suite (these are basically fully equipped one bed apartments with balcony etc). The rooms are all decorated in a fitting yet stylish nautical theme with excellent room facilities, however it is the view that really makes this hotel stand out from the others. Wow!
Outside, the hotel boast lovely gardens, a heated pool (right by the waters' edge), and a lovely terrace area; all with outstanding panoramic views over the estuary, the beaches and the sea. The terrace also has a BBQ for guests to use (real suntrap), and we sat here in the afternoon watching the boats go by.
We met a couple of families there who were staying in the larger apartments and they all said how much the hotel had dramatically improved in the last year or two both in terms of quality, services and appearance. By the sounds of it, the larger apartments are of a very high standard also.
We will definitely be returning, perhaps we will stay in one of the Seaside Suites next time as they have plenty of space and considerably more self-catering facilities (which suits us), and of course the balcony. Very highly recommended.
