10/10 Exceptional

Attended a 100th and a 50th birthday lunch. Meal was delicious attentive staff. As we had come some distance we stayed overnight. Couldn’t fault the room, towel rail in toilet/shower room was lovely and hot. Nothing beats drying yourself with a warm towel. Enjoyed our stay,would highly recommend.

Nice little hotel right on coastline. Very friendly staff that went out of their way to help. Beds were very comfortable. Windows made very high pitched whistle due to high winds. Bathroom could have been cleaner, dirt around bath handles and shower head dirty. Found pair of bedtime shorts inside of my childs bed that didnt belong to us. Decor needs updating as a bit dark.

High up in a residential neighborhood with views. Good kitchen on premise. Overnight guests should be aware that overpriced breakfast is not included. Exposed building gets a noisy buffeting when the wind is up.

Try hard but need to do a little more.
Staff were very friendly especially the reception staff and the young girl in the restaurant. Food in the restaurant was a reasonable price, a good portion and served well. The room was tired and the windowsill was coffee stained and the paint was peeling. The kettles lead didn't reach the socket which meant we had to put the kettle on the floor for boiling. The bathroom was adequate but could have done with some shelving in the en suite to make life a little easier. Small things, really, but things that mattered to us as we stayed for more than one night. As we were leaving we were told that The Rocks was due for refurbishment, I just hope it's soon. A little disappointing for the price we paid but if refurbishment is done soon, we may well try it again - everyone deserves a second chance.
