I booked a night at this fabulous hotel as a birthday treat for my wife while we were on holiday in California.

The pictures I'd seen in brochures and on the BW web site made the hotel look like the setting for a romantic novel, perched on a cliff top with crashing waves down below.

Well, in reality it was even better than that. When the guy checking us in saw that it was my wife's birthday, he upgraded us to a suite, which was incredible. We had two bedrooms (both with balconies facing out over the ocean), a bathroom, and a lounge/kitchen with balcony.

We ate at the restaurant attached to the hotel and, although it was a little expensive, the food was outstanding.

As we were travelling up the coast we were only there for one night...but we both wished we could have stayed for a couple of weeks. I have no doubt we will go back there in the future for a longer stay.
