6 of us stayed here for a birthday celebration, all agreed it was a lovely hotel in a fantastic location. The breakfast is very good. The only (slight) negatives are that the rooms are a little tired and the double beds were very small.

No restrictions were made during our stay. It's very deep at one end and not very big. Swimmers stand no chance

ARROGANCE! They don’t care. They take your money and provide appalling service. The hotel is rubbish and is a sad reflection of many UK hotels who rely on the view and nothing else.
