We stayed in this B&B, I really can not call it a hotel, end of July 2011.
The outside is not impressive but the interior is well taken care off, English Manor style.
The rooms are nice, bathrooms small but new and well kept.
It has a Scottish Bar but works as an honesty bar and so despite what the hotel website mentions, you can not order anything to eat or drink and the rooms have no mini bar. Self-service for drinks is the only possibility.
The breakfast is very tasty and offers a wide variety bread types, eggs (not in bain-marie warmers but made to order !), fresh fruit, fresh marmelades, salmon, cheeses, meat cuts, cereals, yoghourts etc.
Staff at the morning table is very friendly and caters to perfection.
The hotel offers wellness deals with sauna and massage, very sorry it takes place in an ugly tiled basement and they do not offer bathrobes to go there either.
Once you forget about the environment, the sauna is very clean, spacious and well-heated and the massage we had was very professional and the best part of our stay.
The garden of the hotel is nice and has a small heated pool, unfortunately we could not enjoy it because we had bad weather.
Location is not ideal, 20 minutes’ walk from the center and beach and nothing nearby to enjoy a meal so you have to walk, take the hotel bike or drive and struggle with parking. Beware the hotel bikes are old and not serviced, they do not even have a working light !
Also strange that there is no staff to attend to the guests or the facilities after 18 PM and no number to call in case of an emergency of any kind.
Overall price-quality not so good, really felt it was not worth the hotel price they charged.
I doubt if we would go back, never much liked the B&B business and especially not if I believe I booked a hotel and get a B&B anyway, what’s in a name ?
