We were looking to escape for a couple of days and able to get a room at the last minute. We haven't stayed here for a good few years but found it to be almost as we left it but with the added bonus of a new "conservatory" on the front which extended the dining room and on the other side gave somewhere to sit and take in the sea view. We had a sea view room in the main part of the building, which was a bonus for such a late booking. The room was nicely decorated, had a very good sized bathroom with separate bath (view of the sea could be had from the bath if you opened the frosted window) and shower, a good sized TV, comfy bed - what more could anyone want for a short break. Breakfast was very good with prompt service. We dined at The Ancient Mariner "pub" next door, which is part of the hotel complex so you can add any spend to your hotel bill. The pub had been extended since our last visit, which was definitely needed, especially at the height of the season. The food was good here with great friendly service.
The hotel is in a great position with the lawn leading down through the dunes to the beach. A great bonus for a morning and evening walk on the beach. Let's hope it's not so long this time before we return. less
