    Went to the restaurant for dinner it was not near warm enough you would think paying £23.00 pound each for dinner that you would get a very hot meal. Not the case we did complain nothing was done. The size off the meal was another issue too small for what your paying was more like a child’s portion. You would think a fancy hotel would be up market enough for you to have a hot meal considering the price very disappointed. Told reception next morning was told manger would ring us no phone call came the toilet in the bedroom was awful very dirty looking and stained

    Step back in time for a little luxury-Just Lovely.
    We were honestly treated like royalty. Every member of staff that we met was polite, affable and helpful. They honestly couldn't do enough from check in , to housekeeping to bar and restaurant, everyone was lovely. The hotel itself is grand and tasteful, the location was breathtaking, the room was large, clean and comfortable, the breakfast was extensive and tasty and free use of the pool, sauna and steam room (even after check out) was an unexpected surprise. Can't wait to go back and be pampered again. Very romantic weekend. Thank you.

    Very Good8.0
    Reliable luxury
    This is a lovely hotel - timeless elegance, touches of luxury, in a beautiful location. Only issue we had was with service in the Lighthouse Lounge which was very slow but have given feedback to hotel and I'm sure they will address this. Love the rooms - very comfortable beds and spotlessly clean. Spa and gym area are good but can get busy at peak times. I choose this hotel over many others for it's location. I love being able to walk along the seafront and into the town. This gives lots of choice for a meal out or a drink in a local bar ir coffee shop.
