The worst ever hotels I have ever stayed
Perhaps this is the worst hotel ever I have been occupied Now mirror or dress change facilities No coat hanger No hot water No courtesy to provide it unless informing change the tap direction towards left not even knowing that there is not even a single drop of water in this direction Simply cheating by announcing and advertising WiFi is available it is not available inside the room when complained had a funny answer WiFi is available in the promises of the hotel The receptionist does not know what is an inter com Brocken toilet in room number 8 Very poor guests service

A restful break
We had the "Sir Robert" suite with a marvellous view over the harbour entrance, doubt if we'd have enjoyed the place as much if we had a room without a balcony. The food is a bit uninspiring, suggest you dine out - plenty of good places within safe walking distance.

Great location, lovely sea views from restaurant
Good location, lovely views of the sea, service good, rooms clean. Only negative is the pool should have been cleaned of leaves etc more regularly and the jacuzzi also needed cleaning.

Decent Stay
Stayed at the hotel with my wife and child. The Hotel was under repairs. The restaurants were being renovated and the spa was not function. The Hotel made every effort to make our stay comfortable. They gave a free upgrade. The view and the location was excellent. They also arranged spa treatments from another location nearby. The pick up and drop off was already arranged. The food is decent a wee bit over priced as compared to others around them. There breakfast service was very slow. Apart from that the stay was good. The staff are just lovely and very very respectful and helpfull.
