6/10 Good

The rooms are great with lovely views towards the sea. We would stay here again but would eat out. The buffet needs to be avoided! Despite being there an hour after the buffet opened the food was either cold or had run out When I said to the chef that the veggies were cold he took one out by hand, felt it and then returned it to the tray! If that’s what is done in public what happens in the kitchen?
