I stayed here over Christmas and was very impressed with the size, space and decor of the room, and the old fireplaces in the restaurant and lounge area. Very close to the beach and delicious food. Will definitely return in the future!

Thanks for the generous comments. We are currently undertaking a few upgrades to the roooms, so hopefully you will be more impressed on a future visit. Also, following Santa's kind contribution of the 2 Masterchef cookbooks, we hope to continue the tradition of excellent food.

An honest review and one we entirely agree with. There are already new pillows and new duvets in some of the rooms. Rest assured there will be new throughout the Hotel before long. I completely agree with the TLC required, but as we moved in...More
