Our favourite rooms
Rooms flaunt a luxe take on nautical chic, with plenty of options for families (most have space for a cot). Perfect for older children, Village Room 11 has adorable white iron twin beds with checked red and white bedding. The Seaview Family Room has a separate bedroom for parents and a beautiful bathroom with a freestanding bath leading into a separate bunk bedroom for the kids, which even has its own TV. Grand Seaview Rooms are the biggest, with separate baths and showers, and a cosy window seat from which to take in the harbour; two of them are equipped with a sofa bed.
The hotel can arrange in-room aromatherapy massages (£85 an hour); it’s best to book a day in advance, though last-minute pampering sessions are sometimes available.
Don't forget your jelly shoes: the rocky beach can be a bit ouchy on little feet.
It’s best to book babysitting five days in advance, particularly during school holidays. The hotel can usually arrange massages with a day’s notice.
