Stayed only for one night but it was excellent. It starts even before you enter with porter to help with bags, fast check in offer of booking for dinner and then straight to the room On the way noticed that they have redecorated the corridors and it looks really smart and very clean. Sea facing view rooms look over small putting green and grass area doubling as a helicopter pad.
I used the SPA facilities, there is a small gym but a super pool sauna and steam room they also do various spa treatments and again really clean and tidy.
A number of large parties were gettting ready for dinner but I was still able to find a quiet location to get on with what I wanted to do and the offer of a few nibbles with a G&T a A la carte menue or Table d'hote - chose the latter as was on DBB.
Going through to dinner order taken promptly and a really nice selection of breads and a little taster. Start came quickly and they had ensured that the had enough staff and supevisos to ensure a really quality service. The food was excellent, just the right amount and came on hot plates and well presented superb vegtables crunchy and a great selection although my preference would be for no salt ! Desert followed really tasty and just the right amount followed by coffee in the Lounge - throughout the evening the service was excellent and a credit to the owners.
Really good nights sleep the room was clean, tidy and the bath/shower was clean with great attention to cleanliness.
Breakfast was of the same order with plenty on offer and you could chose from a selection of buffet items but could still order from a waiter if you wanted to take a little more time and have a leisurely breakfast. I was extremely impressed when I was asked if I wanted to book dinner for the next evening - sadley only one night and I could quite easily have thrown caution to the wind and said yes as I had enjoyed my short stay so much ! Check out was smooth with all items prepared with a farewell and safe journey hoped for me.
I really think this must be the best serviced I have had this year so well done to the hotel and I will definately be back - I might even take up the free round of golf avilable to each resident (not that I am any good)
