I loved our surroundings on the Upper Deck and the views but unfortunately the tea did not match my expectations. My scone was chewy and not fresh and the coffee cake was not very appetising. But a plus was the offer of more tea. I took a friend there for her birthday and I admit, I was disappointed.

Before commenting on how comfortable this hotel is here are a couple of important points worth noting, some things the staff are unlikely to draw your attention to. Firstly, you should know there is a good value menu of 2 or 3 courses available if you book a table between 6 & 7pm. Sit down a 6.50pm and enjoy a...

Our courtyard room was well appointed and comfortable. The hot tap on one of he ensuiite bathroom basins wasn't seated properly and there was a dirty bathrobe hanging, as clean, in the wardrobe (with tissue hanging out of the pocket!) In spite of drawing it to the management's attention it took a second attempt to get it changed. The food...

On this visit we stayed for 3 nights. What a great stay. We stayed in 2 lovely rooms overlooking the sea, one being a superior sea view room with balcony. The hotel has been completely refurbished since our previous visit. Lovely setting, excellent food & service provide a great stay. Hopefully we'll visit again.

I booked Full Afternoon Tea for my mum's 70th. It was AMAZING! We had so much fun. The food was delicious and the service really good! We were told to let them know if we wanted more tea, so we kind of had unlimited. We will definitely return! Thank you for making it so special!!
