Positive Reviews

From sea to greens.

The location of the hotel is stunning. Golf course views compete with sea vistas of the Atlantic Ocean. Guests can also take a coastal walk on a concrete trail. Those wanting to explore can take in nearby indoor swim center Water World and hike the Rougey

High standard and quality.

Many of the rooms have been refurbished and these rooms are luxurious, opulent, and fully modern. The spotless accommodations are of the highest standard and quality, even for scrupulous travellers. The spacious bedrooms and bathrooms provide the comfort

So much for families.

Those travelling with families will be delighted by all the choices and features. The hotel is truly family-friendly and can provide extra sleeping cots and high chairs. The large family rooms have space for bigger families. In addition, the hotel feature

Negative Reviews

Sometimes historic just means old.

The historic inn is over 100 years old and that age can easily be seen in many areas of the hotel. The rooms which are not newly refurbished are shabby with old-fashioned décor and don't resemble the nicer and newer pictures on the website.

In the frozen north.

The Atlantic isn't the only thing to get cold in the north at winter. At the hotel, expect cold rooms, a cold pool, and a generally cold atmosphere. The service and welcome can also be a bit cool, rather than a warm and hearty reception.

No personal touches.

The hotel has more of a chain feel than the personal touches of a smaller inn. Complaints and concerns are noted, but not addressed. Many guests find the accommodations to be part of a tourist package of overpriced products and impersonal service.
