We booked two nights in September and having read previous reviews about the rooms overlooking the car park we requested a sea view room but unfortunately none were available. However, the room allocated was extremely spacious--the en-suite was bigger than some hotel rooms I've stayed in and despite it overlooking the car park we did not experience any noise. We booked dinner at the special rate only available on-line and were pleasantly surprised to find that this included anything from the a la carte menu. It was tremendous value. Again,the breakfast was excellent as was the coffee shop. The staff were very friendly.
The only slight drawback was the difficulty in finding a space in the car park. We arrived mid afternoon on a Sunday and because the hotel is so popular for Sunday Lunch and people linger until late afternoon the car park was full. Fortunately, after waiting a few minutes and wondering what to do, one car left and we were able to park. If we had been unable to park it would have been a problem and I think the hotel should consider having parking spaces designated for hotel residents. After the lunch diners left, the car park emptied and there was no problem. I would stay again but would avoid arriving on a Sunday.
