8/10 Very good

Short break
Great location, but the general cleanliness and decoration doesn’t reflect the cost charged.

Romantic Long Weekend
Hotel chosen for the location. Returning guests, having stayed several times before. Paid extra for smart room overlooking sea. Superb big balcony. Some bits of hotel showing their age but that wasn't a major issue for us. Breakfast good although quality of sausages variable (one day good, one day not so good). Staff very welcoming and helpful.
