Enjoyed Most: Great views and fantastic location especially if you like walking the coast path. We had a lovely spacious room overlooking the garden and it was nice to have a swim in the indoor pool.
Other Comments: Our Garden View room was much more private than the sea view rooms. Orders for dinner are taken late afternoon with a knock at the door by the waiter, thought this was a bit intrusive, would prefer to order dinner with a pre-dinner drink!
