Honeymoon dream
We stayed here for our honeymoon. The staff were friendly. The room was amazing. They gave us a free spa voucher and champagne. The views were spectacular from the room. The air-con, under floor heating, and the heated towel racks were a huge plus since it was wintery and cold during our stay. The hotel has everything you ever need within walking distance. The breakfast vouchers were an amazing idea, we loved going to Café Mario at the waterfront, their food was excellent. Il de pain had the most amazing tarts. Over all, very impressed.
