    Perfect

    The view was truly astonishing, the breakfast was huge. During our stay the spacious veranda was definitely a highlight. All staffs were amazing! If you like the shopping area, then it would be a reasonable base for you. What's more, getting to Charlestown Shipwreck Centre on foot takes about 15 mins. Furthermore, free Wi Fi was a great addition.

    We thought this hotel to be extremely good. The staff very attentive, the decor excellent, the overall cleanliness was excellent. A definite 11/10!!

    The golf course is good, but the pro-shop people not helpful in finding me a partner for my game, however, I did manage to link up with a couple of players further on, and enjoyed the match.

    Very good

    Beautiful views from the sea-facing rooms; luxurious all-white bathroom where everything worked first time and the light came from large, openable windows; rooms featuring firm, comfortable beds, two armchairs and plenty of drawer and cupboard space; ample if rather repetitious breakfasts; large comfortably furnished lounges and bars; plenty of sporting facilities and free access (even for non-golfers) to an excellent golf clubhouse with views, drinks and light meals, including on the verandah

    Not a purpose-built hotel, so it mostly lacks bedroom balconies, air- conditioning, room fridges, and most obviously of all, lifts. There is only one lift, so tiny it cannot accommodate a normal wheelchair or mobility buggy (and it is a bit of a worry to find somewhere to put your chair or buggy overnight). It does not offer free wi-fi, and the signal is poor upst airs. Guests get a bt openzone card for one day, which introduces a problematic extra level of sign-in.

    location at the see and nice view from the room

    Great

    Quite nice hotel at an absolutely beautiful location with a swimming pool, gym and tennis courts. Several restaurants in the hotel. Large comfortable lounge area.

    Last orders in the various restaurants are at about 9pm. Room service also stops serving at about 9pm. No other restaurants near-by. So if you haven't had dinner by 9pm then only option is the local 24-hour Tesco's! (You need a car to get there). Tennis courts are in a bad shape.

    Nice

    We enjoyed the spa and treatments on offer and found the spa manager to be both friendly and skilled at her job. The sea- facing grounds were also pleasant.

    We found the restaurant manager unfriendly and the room service to be less than we would have expeccted.

    The a la carte menu could have been more extensive and changed more frequently.
