Stayed for 4 nights on bed and breakfast, in a twin room with a sea view, on the 1st floor (room 103). Very comfortable - I liked the firm bed and pillows,and slept soundly. The bathroom was roomy, with an excellent shower,but bedroom was a bit cramped and it would have been nice to have more hanging space.
The big attraction was the view - it was stunning! It was great to be able to sit in the room with a cuppa from the well-stocked items provided, looking at the sea in all weathers. The lounges and restaurant all share the view too, and it was lovely to sit in or out on the terrace watching the magnificent sunset. It was just a short stroll to the dunes and sea, ideal for a quick too or paddle.
The breakfast was all as expected - a good choice of both cold and hot items. The cooked breakfast, you could choose what you liked and it was brought to the table freshly cooked and hot. There could have been better fruit - the fruit salad was mainly melon and apple- some fresh berries would have been nice this time of the year. Coffee hot, fresh and strong without being bitter.
The hotel staff were friendly and efficient. Especially the lady on reception who was so welcoming, and went out of her way to arrange a discount voucher for dinner at the pub next door (which was good to have as the meal was mediocre and I would have been annoyed to have paid the full price ,£13.50, for some very ordinary fish and chips).
All together I'd recommend this hotel for a pleasant place to stay. The only reason it's getting 4 stars instead of 5 is that it is pricey, considering the competition from other hotels in the area. However, it's peak season - next visit will be at a different time of the year. less
