Summary

“What could be more romantic than an island retreat from the 1930s?”“dress up, enjoy the wonderful cocktails and then delve into the excellent menu”; even the odd sceptic, for whom the “food and service don’t quite live up to expectations”, can’t fault the “marvellous” setting and “fabulous” cocktails at this serene Art Deco hotel (an old haunt of Agatha Christie).
