We had two family rooms for a 2 night stay over the recent Bank Holiday, one was a large double with an additional sofa bed and en-suite with a bath. it was clean and comfortable and big enough for 3 people and luggage. The room however was extremely hot on arrival and the radiator was not available to guests to turn off. However with a quick word to the receptionist, it was quickly sorted whilst we were out. The second room 101 I believe was fantastic. A huge and newly decorated room with a double bed and sofa bed, large wardrobe and shower en-suite. excellent quality. The large bay windows looked over the front of the hotel and the road was very quiet and so slept very well. no sea views but this didn't concern us as we were 5 minute walk to the seafront and this was what we wanted to see! breakfast was speedy and of good quality. Full English suited all our party well!
The location is central, walk to the seafront and beach and into town - great location for tiny tired legs! pier was being refurbished I believe so this would add to the attraction for future visits.
We ate in the bar one evening - good quality pub food with a few nice specials and some good seafood options. very accommodating to a family with children. Bar was nice if a little small, staff were very friendly. We had the carvery on the second night which was clearly very popular with the locals too! Full house! Lovely meats on offer, choice of veg. Staff were good too.
Car parking was available off street to the front - was a little busy during the carvery but plenty on the roads surrounding.
definitely recommend and would like to return! less
