We stayed here in January. It's an impressive building and one I walked past, but never went in for 16 years as I grew up nearby. My hubby & I had tickets to see Eddie Izzard at the nearby De La Warr and needed somewhere close to stay. This fit the bill. I was excited to finally get to go in the building! Choc full of original features inside as well as out. Room was large, comfortable and on the 5th floor with a great sea view. Breakfast was nice, and the breakfast room had large Windows spanning the length looking out the sea. The best thing about the hotel was the staff though. Really friendly & helpful.
I do kind of wish there was more furniture in our room though- it was a big room. Maybe that's me! The room lent itself to some more cosyness :)
One issue though- Parking. It's a pain around there. We were there on a Saturday night so I know that made things worse. But there was none on the roads nearby. However please note there is a car park opposite. This provides free parking between 6pm and 8am. And if you put money in before 6pm, any extra hours paid for carry over to the morning. Worth knowing if you don't want to get up and get a ticket at 8am! less
