Location is superb, right on the seafront only minutes walk to promenade. Parking is on the street but the hotel provide a parking permit for just £1 p.day. The room was comfortable and just adequate in size to be called a reasonable double. The bathroom was just o.k. and could have done with an improved clean; quite a lot of dust and the mirror was grubby. In hot weather the room would have been very stuffy, even with the windows open. However there was a fan provided that would improve the ventilation. The breakfast was ok, but for £25 for two it didn't seem particularly special. On the Monday morning at 9am the breakfast room was very full and it took some time before a waitress took our order for tea and coffee; they had run-out of bacon and the queue to make toast was not worth the wait! It could be that a 9.30 end to breakfast serving during week days is too early and causing a peak at 9am.
The meal in the restaurant on the Sunday evening was very good; attentive staff and a quality wine at a decent price. A very enjoyable time all round. The steak was superb and the trout dish excellent.
Would certainly return to this hotel for a short break - just do something about the breakfast rush-hour! less
