Great Service

Second time using the hotel, good location and the rooms are great. I hade a very late checkin due to a delayed flight but Maddie the receptionist was great, she waited longer than she needed to until i arrived and was really nice about the whole late check in.

Have stayed here a few times in different rooms, normally I book one of the two themed rooms. The staff from reception to cleaners are all very courteous as well as helpful, in fact nothing is to much of a problem as we had the wrong bed which was quickly changed while we were at dinner. The rooms are all modern with nautical themed and are cleaned to a high standard, they are comfortable with all modern amenities. The restaurant and bar is superb the food is delicious as well as reasonably priced. I highly recommend a stay here as we will continue to do so.
