10/10 Exceptional

Would look forward to returning
Can't thank the staff enough for going the extra mile and on multiple occasions at that - not least getting me sorted with another nights stay during the rail strike (they were at capacity). Everyone provided exceptional service and it was very much appreciated - even the night manager was happy to give advice of when to get the best photos over the bay. The hotel is in a perfect location overlooking the bay (definitely worth paying extra for a room with a view or better still a balcony). The hotel itself looks nice, bright and is spacious, offering plenty of facilities for guests to use. The rooms were recently decorated with modern ensuites and are well kitted out, including a fan which was great at cooling us down during the heatwave. Great value for money.
