lovely hotel, huge let down by shower
On arrival we had to find someone (approx 4pm), when we found someone she just told us to ring the bell, I think she was the manageress, a smile wouldn't have gone amiss, however she was pleasant afterwards.
Our room was a king size with seaview, it was a lovely spacious room, but the king size bed was 2 beds pushed together. The view was lovely. Tea/coffee etc in room well stocked. Sadly the bathroom was a huge let down, old and dull, the shower was rubbish, it was run off the taps, little pressure and not hot, in fact you couldn't run the cold tap too. If the bathroom/shower was sorted I would recommend this hotel. The food was lovely, good variety, pleasant and friendly service.
Needs more staff when alot of people at breakfast
Breakfast was a buffet style which was good although i think some guests took advantage of this and had more than their share.
There did not seem to be enough staff on at breakfast time and tables were not cleared and relaid in time for next people to be seated. I noted one couple who took their cereal into the foyer to eat. When they returned there were still no tables set.
