Stayed here for a night with our dog. Chose Best Western as they are dog friendly in a lot of their hotels, HOWEVER this one charges you £15 for the privilege (unlike all the others we have stayed at so I didn't notice it as I just searched for pets allowed and this one came up) and it is only written in the small print (within the summary) so if you don't notice this you won't know until you get there, and by then its too late, you will be charged the additional money on top of what you have already paid making a reasonably priced hotel room into a very costly one. What do you get for this colossal fee, nothing at all. While I understand that many hotels charge a cleaning fee for the room, which is understandable, they tell you up front and clearly that there is a charge, and rarely is it that much. Very disappointed with Best Western again on this trip.
Onto the hotel, a bit retro and definitely dated, but the room was clean, quite spacious, had tea and coffee facilities, but boiling hot in the afternoon sun. With both windows open it was bearable for the evening and the pub noise from outside (just across the road) did tail off by about 11:30 p.m, so sleep was possible. Right by the sea, a pebbly beach with a nice promenade to walk on, at the west end the beach becomes dog friendly so you can let them run off lead. Breakfast was hot and plentiful. No idea where you were allowed to sit with your dog as having paid stupid money we just decided to rebel so walked in with him and sat at a table!! No one said anything to us about it, but am sure this was not the usual judging by other hotel stays. Parking was free on road (along the prom). less
