I won a night at this lovely hotel as part of a raffle prize. I tried to book a Saturday but they were fully booked all through the summer which is a good sign. The hotel is part of the Hastings group and if I am brutally honest it's the forgotten cousin. However it only disappointed on a superficial level, it looked a bit tired. We had a lovely sea view room with the best bed in the world ever. We arrived and were privileged to watch the hotel host a local wedding which was beautiful. We had two seats in front of the fire and ordered a pint of Murphy's and a glass of wine to start our fab night away. Drinks were a bit pricey but again in the Hastings Group and that's what to expect. The restaurant was virtually empty so we had the full undivided attention of the very attentive hotel staff. I ordered a rib eye and oh my goodness it was the biggest steak ever. We over ordered on the sides which was a shame we couldn't finish the food was fabulous. We went back into the bar after our meal and had a few nigh caps and chatted with the wedding party. We had a great sleep and then up in the morning for a superb buffet breakfast, with all sorts to eat and very fine quality.
