Just returned from a whistle stop 3 day break over Easter at this excellent hotel. Although the hotel was not a new hotel it was absolutely first class. The location, right on the cliff side, over the beach is stunning, with all rooms having a sea view. The rooms were fine, plenty big enough with a functional, if slightly dated,...

Nice hotel. Rather dated though. Bar service rather slow at night. Not a 4 star more 3. But ok for weekends. No hairdryer in room as you have to go to reception for one. No tea and coffee in room either
