All 109 en-suite bedrooms are enhanced by plush velvet furnishings with a gentle nod to the luxury and glamour of the art deco era. Each bedroom also comes complete with a 50-inch smart TV and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi.

The coast is spectacular, as is our hotel and we look forward to looking after guests on a much-needed break as they experience something outside of their homes for the first time in months.”
