8/10 Very good

An excellent, but expensive hotel.
We enjoyed our stay at the hotel largely because we had a recently refurbished and very comfortable room with a sea view and balcony. The hotel has now been painted a creme colour which in our view is not as attractive as it is pictured above. The staff were efficient and helpful.

4 night business / leisure trip
We were staying for a large conference and the delegates stayed here and at 2 sister hotels nearby. Room was excellent, comfortable and complimentary water, tea/coffee and evening turn down service. Breakfast was good quality albeit not a massive range but more than enough choice. Food served for the confernece dinners was very good and service was polite and excellent. Swam in outdoor pool which was heated and indoor pool is more for relaxation and smaller. Did not have time to try the spa or other facilities.
