2/10 Poor

Not what we expected for a 4 star place
Insufficient parking for size of hotel. Mattress long past its useful service life. No tools to eat seafood in restaurant. No lift too upper floors. Asked to wait 80 minutes for a table for our breakfast so we went to Costa instead. One of our worst ever hotel experiences & we are not chronic complainers.

Beautiful Hotel
Beautiful hotel right next to the water, friendly staff who could not do enough to make your stay pleasant. My only critisism would be the amount of stairs we had to lug our suitcases up

2/10 Poor

Awful experience. Despite being advertised and booked with parking for our 3 rooms there is only 2 accessible spaces and 2 EV spaces. The receptionist was unapologetic. We had to park in the public car park a 5 min walk away. When we asked to book dinner after checking in (and walking back from the car park) we were advised the restaurant was full that evening. Tried to book breakfast for the following morning but only limited late availability so couldn’t. We wanted to use the sauna and spa but as it was only available if booked and the weekend we were there was fully booked we weren’t able to. Not to mention the tiny room and ridiculously low water pressures, it was a truly appalling stay. At over £200 per room per night that is totally unacceptable.
