    Well worth a visit

    Very nicely situated , older style hotel. Reception rooms and bar area well appointed. Bedroom was good size, clean and good facilities. Because it's an older building I did have a couple of issues with floor boards creaking in the corridor, noisy radiator and sound transference in the bathroom ; all of which I mentioned and was informed would be looked at. I was also offered a change of room which I didn't take as I was only there for a another 2 nights. Other than breakfast (which looked to be very good unless, like me, you were vegan) I didn't use the restaurant, but the staff and service were excellent. I would be very likely to stay here again . It was a lovely 20 minute stroll into town along the seafront or a £5 taxi ride from the station area. Super views out to sea and there is a conservatory (which was being renovated during my stay) and an outdoor heated swimming pool available after April.

    Not sure what expect, pleasantly surprised...

    I wasn’t sure sure what to expect and I was was pleasantly surprised. Despite the age of the building the hotel was very clean and nicely decorated. First rate breakfast and extremely courteous people offering the best levels of service... Highly recommended!

    Overall ,very nice stay .

    Overall a good stay. Public rooms were very good with lots of comfortable seating .plumbing in the room could do with improvement to be of a good 4* standard . Shower drained very slowly into the sewer pipe , which caused the water level in the loo to increase . Also when flushing the loo with anything other than liquid caused water to rise through the shower plug hole .
