Wonderful stay to celebrate a special birthday
From the minute we arrived we were made to feel welcome with a smiling greeting from the reception staff (Tania). This continued throughout with a friendly chat everytime we were coming and going. The room was clean, beds were comfortable and as we requested we had a harbour view. Tea and coffee facilities were good and there was also an empty fridge for guests to use. Breakfast choice and quality was very good and again the staff were very nice and smiling (Jazz). We ate in the in-house Amalfi restaurant on the Monday night. Having eaten at Rick Steins restaurant the previous night I would say that, having had fish starters and mains both nights, overall the Amalfi's whole dining experience, quality of food and service was better (at less than half the price), especially our waitress Meena who always had a happy smile. We even received a voucher at reception for a free bottle of wine. Plenty of room in the car park but it is their winter season so the hotel wasn't very busy. Only negative might be, for less able person walking, is that it is a very steep road from the beach up to the hotel but if you are using a car then no problem. Overall would definitely recommend.
