Although the location is great and the views are stunning this hotel is very old fashioned, with its nineteen twenties deco and layout.
The staff are keen and friendly and at all times very helpful but this does not hide the fact that you are taking a step back in time.
Only a personnel preference but I do prefer the more modern hotels, saying that I could not really find fault , the food ok but a limited choice, the pool area is a good size with sauna and hot tub and the gym was quite well fitted out.
My room was no 36 with views down the coast with a great size bath and shower, the blankets on the bed were quite old and scratchy but once again it did the job.
As stated if you stay here you will bump into lots of elderly guest as they have been staying here for years and have become part of the charm. (If that floats your boat).
WIFI does not work in the rooms you have to be in reception or close to it
And the furniture in the rooms with free standing wardrobes and old style dressers is a reminder of the age of this place.
