A lovely hotel. Probably one of the best belonging to Bay Hotels. The one thing that can be always guaranteed with Bay Hotels is the relaxing atmosphere as you walk in. The reception staff were very attentive and efficient. The lift was very modern, no creaking (something worth a mention if you've ever stayed at some of the other Bay Hotels). Our room, on the third floor, was quite spacious and had undergone some modernisation. Very clean. It had a great view of the bay with the ferry coming in. The facilities in the room were good, the normal kettle, tea and coffee....and a teapot, which was quite unusual. The bed was very comfortable.
The meals were good, the waiting staff were nice and friendly. The Hungarian waitress, whose name I can't quite remember, was lovely.
The communal rooms were lovely, comfortable and very clean.
If anything let it down it was the lack of space to park cars, although we were lucky and managed to park in the grounds when we needed to.
All in all it was an excellent hotel. The staff were a credit. Very well run. We will definately be staying there again.
