stayed with a couple of friends from overseas. Staff were extremely rude at the bar, took over 15 min to order a round of drinks. Security staff were exceptionally rude. Room was okay, far better rooms elsewhere for similar money.

We apologise you found our bar staff and security team rude. This feedback has been passed on to our Operations team for review. We are so disappointed to see you didn't enjoy our newly refurbished nautically styled rooms but we understand they may not be everyone's cup of tea. Safe Travels.

Really enjoyed my stay here. I did not expect the rooms to be as lovely as they were. The views are amazing, and everything is so comfortable. Definitely worth the price. Staff are all lovely and friendly. Food was very nice as well. Could not fault my stay at all. I stayed an extra night because I enjoyed it that much. Definitely will be back and will recommend.

Hi Anonymous Sadly I don't have your details to contact you directly. I would like to offer you my most sincere apologies for the lapses in service you experienced during your stay. I was saddened to read your review and would loved to have made amend to you. We definitely don't rest on our laurels due to our beautiful location. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to chat further. It is also handy for others to note that the Sunset Room referred to here is an event space and not our main dining area and yes we do hosts weddings in this space most weekends in the summer. The Beach Club is our dining area which is always open and has amazing views overlooking the harbour. Yes - we do charge for barista coffee at breakfast - our complimentary continental breakfast does not include this. Coffee is the only thing you have to pay for at breakfast! Sadly our service wasn't what it should be on this occasion and we are really sorry about this. Thank you so much for your all your valuable feedback rest assured we will follow up at our end. Warm regards Judy Beardsell Accommodation Manager
