From a hotel point of view, the Coastal Park is more of a restaurant/grill with rooms.
Let's get the less positive elements out of the way first. The rooms are comfortable (good beds, plenty of towels & pillows, kettle), but are a little let down by poor sound-proofing and unbelievably complex bathroom equipment which functions only moderately well. Having said that, the rooms are not expensive -- so maybe I'm being a bit of a curmudgeon.
On the positive side, the Coastal Park features a restaurant that many local people dress up to go to -- and it's easy to understand why. The menu is very varied, the quality of both ingredients and preparation is generally good, and it would be very difficult to complain about the portion sizes. I've stayed there three times, for two nights on each visit, and I've never been remotely tempted to go outside the hotel to eat. At the time of writing, prices are set at about £5-6 for the average starter and £13-14 for the average main course. It is possible to pay extra for side dishes of vegetables, but quite unnecessary. The wine list is short, but well judged, and offers several very acceptable options for less than £15 per bottle.
Best of all, though, are the people. Both the proprietors and the staff fall over themselves to be helpful. There are many much more expensive establishments where you would feel less welcome. Attentive service from delightful people.
I'll be back next year!
