As ever we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. This hotel remains my favourite (worldwide). The birthday party was perfectly arranged by the events coordinator, with the absolute minimum of fuss. This is the third such event they have organised for me.
Stayed just one night. Staff friendly, spa excellent. Had a great meal in the restaurant. Just 5 min walk down to a beautiful beach. Rooms clean and comfortable, although not large. Highly recommended.
"hotel ok but they have got the leisure side wrong"
There are some really goods points; the bar area and lounge are very well done - although these areas clearly have been this way for many years and the regal look remains attractive. Room was ok; basic TV with no sky or movies as options.
My only reason for classing this hotel as generaly OK was the dissapointing spa area - sauna was the size of a telephone box, changing room had 1 seat to seat down on, tiny lockers, two showers which took up 3 times the space that everyone had to change in; whilst i was changing there were 7 people trying to dress in a 3 metre square area. Pool cleaning kit left by the bubble spa but easily the worst thing was the amount of locals that poored in, there seems to be a membership option meaning both the gym and pool area were populated by alot of them particulalry young lads aiming to get buff with their mates - I did speak to a couple of hotel guests who found it intimidating and far from inviting.
One more thng - the resurant staff were at times inexperienced; i had to ask for knives and forks etc which i thought was a given in that job.
Such a lovely place. The lounges were so beautiful and well presented.
It is steeped in history and quite magical.
The end suite pod was a bit odd, but OK once one got accustomed to it.
Staff were very helpful and attentive
