At first we drove past this hotel as it's situated between an Italian Restaurant and a bar/club but turns out it's all part of the same place! Parked out front no problem, although seems there are only a few spaces so I would imagine there's a possibility for on-street parking. I had called ahead to ask if we could check in earlier at 11.30am as we were driving up from Derbyshire and this was no problem. On arrival we were met by friendly young lady on reception and showed to to our room which was lovely with big windows and lovely sea view, lovely clean bathroom and all seemed fine, until my partner sat on the bed and it promptly collapsed!! We alerted reception and within 10 min a maintenance guy arrived and took the bed apart only to tell us the previous guests appeared to have taken some of the fixtures ha ha! Anyway we were given another room immediately and I actually liked this one better as it was near to the breakfast room and main hall and also better (if even possible as it's all great) view of St Mary's lighthouse. Same spacious type room, big bed, sturdy this time, bed was too soft for me though, but that's personal. Spotless clean room and bathroom, shower cubicle was a tad small but lots of nice clean towels and toiletries. Lots of tea and coffee and even bottles of water. The room was fairly quiet considering it was on a main road along the front and we had no noise from the restaurant or bar. The only time it was noisy was early in the morning when there were quite a few doors slamming and noise outside the room....no idea what it was. We had a takeaway Chinese from place two doors up which was very nice and convenient. The hotel has a snack/drinks machine on 1st floor if so required and of course the bar for refreshments downstairs but we didn't use this facility. The breakfast was great, so much choice and all laid out nicely in buffet style, lots of different items for cooked breakfast and continental breakfast as well as pastries, various juices, cereals and porridge. Staff served coffee and tea and toast and nothing was too much to ask. Friendly and efficient at all times I felt very relaxed at this hotel and I would definitely stay here again.
