Single waitress in Breakfast room was very busy - should have been another person working. I ordered eggs with Gluten Free toast...meal came and I asked if it was GF - It wasnt. Meal was taken away. I suspect the eggs were not discarded as they should have been - the meal came back very quickly with GF toast... I believe the eggs were swapped from non GF to GF - not good food handling.

Bob greeted us when we got there and explained where everything is. We were able to see the sea from our room . The place felt very quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed our stay.

Lovely and quiet on a Sunday night. Lovely view. Free upgrade die to it being quiet! Only thing for improvement was that we could feel the join of the 2 single beds put together to make the king size bed. Suggest some sort of mattress topper.

Good hotel, enjoyed the stay. But the Roast night buffet was disappointing. $28 dollars for a very ordinary meal. Luckily the chef was such a gentleman as he offered some chicken and salmon for us instead of beef.
