Wonderful food impressive dining and bar area. Room comfy but not as nice as rest of hotel. Needs a little updating and a little more cleaning but acceptable. Would return. The fire in the dining area is amazing.

View to the basement which was a little disappointing considering hotel is next to the beach although nice view at breakfast overlooking...

Lovely public spaces modern decor but the bedrooms need updating. More powerful showers needed. Turn down the towel rails as they are far too hot and dangerous. Staff are lovely. Meals were okay a bit like pub meals.
