My wife and I stayed at the Beachcroft Hotel for 3 nights earlier this month, having found it on Trip Advisor and wishing to stay nearby to local friends. As we parked in front a receptionist came out to help us with our luggage, gave a warm welcome and showed us to our room, which looked out over the car park in front of the building, with a sideways on view of the seashore.
The Beachcroft is obviously a relatively old structure, which has been renovated and developed over the years as well as appearing to have had additional accommodation built on at the back. What might have been described as a commercial hotel in the past, its private ownership obviously encourages staff who are extremely courteous and helpful, a room which had every amenity provided with comfortable beds and decent bed linen, and it is now a pleasant holiday place to stay for a few days without pretentions to be grander than it is. Thoroughly recommended, and there is a small indoor swimming pool, but do not expect the grander facilities of many more pretentious hotels along the south coast. It may be only rated 3 star but the staff and atmosphere is 5 star! less
