Tracy Couples - 19/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Had a great overnight stay in a wonderful location. The Hotel Covid-19 procedures made us feel safe, especially when dining in the bar and also in the restaurant for breakfast where the menu's were accessed via QR codes on your own phone and lots of space between diners. Food was excellent especially the breakfast. The pool was great, the beds very comfortable, loved the sheets and the ensuite bathroom had a fantastic walk in shower. Good coastal walk from the hotel as well.

Very relaxed

We were met by a very friendly concierge, Colin and advised of the Covid procedures. Excellent Reception staff welcomed us to our Suite. We were made to feel very special throughout our 3 night stay, and despite new Covid regulations being introduced while we were there (no alcohol to be consumed indoors), and also limited menus, the hotel did their very best to compensate.

Vincent M. Couples - 17/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We had a relaxing time, ate some nice food. The covid restrictions had baring on the overall stay, as did the fire alarm on late Sunday evening and no hot water on Monday morning. However these negatives will not stop me from going back for another visit. The check out staff apologised several times and did remove my food bi from the previous evening and on my return home with discount for my follow on visit. This was all much appreciated and showed a touch of class. So thanks, and we will return.

disappointing

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Jonathan C. Families - 17/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I understand that these are incredibly difficult times but overall rather poor stay. Swimming - all good outside bar - great set up dinner - despite booking, no booking found on system. We ate in the pub area at the top, food took an eternity to come and was pretty poor standard breakfast - average night time - fire alarm evacuated and then no hot water for shower in the morning

Amazing stay let down by breakfast

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Rachael Couples - 16/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel was brilliantly set up for the current regulations and all staff were working extremely hard to still deliver a first class experience. I thoroughly enjoyed a treatment at the spa and we had a fantastic steak dinner. Both of these experiences were truly 5 star! Unfortunately, the service at both afternoon tea and breakfast (particularly breakfast) just couldn’t quite keep up with the increased demands. It was very clear that staff at breakfast were working at full capacity and they continually apologised for what they knew was a sub par service level but it did result in the stay ending on a bit of a bum note. They appear to still be trying to offer the normal Fairmont buffet breakfast but it doesn’t work when guests aren’t able to serve themselves. We received incorrect items, got everything in a weird order, hot items were cold and we spent most of the time without any liquids despite asking several times. I think they’d be better off offering a reduced menu and giving all tables a big jug of water and much bigger glasses of fruit juice. This would reduce the demands on staff members and free them up to focus on service, which they clearly all wanted to do. I want to stress that this wasn’t through lack of effort on anyone’s part - they were all working so hard but just being asked to do too much. Overall, we had an amazing time and would highly recommend a trip to anyone (and have done)! It’s so lovely to get away and relax in such a gorgeous setting and be looked after by such hardworking team members.

Great staff, great focus on safety however the food offering continues to disappoint.

Customer review rating 4.5/5

David S. Couples - 16/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Love this hotel and have been coming for years. Somehow the food offering does not match up to the rest of the facilities. We had dinner in La cucina and it was pretty poor and relatively expensive. Breakfast was OK, I like the idea of booking but 3 times we asked for a well cooked egg hard yolk and 3 times it was runny. This feedback is meant to be helpful. The issue with the food offering has been ongoing for years and generally We prefer to eat out. PS we had room service one evening and it was excellent.

Extremely well looked after

Customer review rating 4.5/5

James Friends - 16/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Room was perfect and hotel overall extremely well run. New measures in place regarding Covid were efficient and as unobtrusive as could be. Effort made with increasing outdoor space with fire pits and hay bales was very welcome. Both golf courses in great condition as well. Thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Enjoyable stay ruined by appalling bed

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Kenneth I. Couples - 16/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Overall we had another enjoyable stay but unfortunately the lovely room was let down by the awful bed/ pillows. The mattress had clearly given up on one side and there was a clear 30cm dip when I was on it compared to the other side. The pillows were soo flat my wife had to fold up the bath robes and use them underneath. Not what I would expect for the price we paid when sleep wasn’t great. Reported to reception in the morning and were advised she would pass it on
