PROS- stunning room with fantastic view, very comfortable bed and pillows and nice linen, beautiful spa with views to the sea and the tv, large tv with DVD (and good selection of free DVDs) accommodating and friendly staff, pretty good breakfast.
CONS- poor bathroom toilettries, noisy if kids staying (thin walls-was fine the first night as no kids!), French champagne actually sparkling wine, no instructions for setting tv to watch DVDs, no-one available on reception/housekeeping phone when I had to call a few of times-would be good if it was transferred over to a mobile if they're out. And the most astounding of all the cons was paying $250 a night and then being charged $3 for coffee from the in-room coffee machine!! Would've thought a couple of coffees could be included and even think they shouldn't bother with the 'champagne' and include complimentary coffee and decent bathroom products instead.
Enjoyed Penguin very much, especially dinner at Wild cafe. Book well ahead! Superb menu (but don't have the crispy pork belly because the skin is soft not crispy!) Wouldve liked to go to Casablanca as well but booked out. Pub meal delicious too.
