We stayed here for 3 nights before moving on to Anglesey for a conference, combining a mini-holiday with business.
It was a rather mixed experience. The food was excellent - so it should be in a resturant with rooms - but the service was not good and detracted from the overall experience.
Personally, I don't like being ushered into the bar to look at the menu - I want to do that at the table, but this seems to be standard practice. We had mussels on day one - no bowl to put the empty shells in and no bowl of water to rinse our hands. Small touches, but important. The music was also too loud and not very suitable for the ambience - probably the choice of the young man serving.
Breakfast service was also rather hit and miss, although the food was again very good.
The waiting staff seemed to be mainly very young people (the much older one told us that our waitress the night before was 15 for example) who were not properly trained - a false economy in any good restuarant.
The room was very nice with a lovely view of the sea.
Overall we were happy with our stay but would certainly recommend much better trained staff giving a service to complement the excellent food.
