I attended an evening do here. It started well with a warm welcome and drinks in the bar. The meal however was appalling. A sit down meal for 25 is tricky I'm sure, but the seabream and poussin options were for the majority were undercooked. I sent my poussin back and it came back to me filleted, deboned and near...

What a lovely hotel located within easy walk of The Lanes and two minutes to the promenade and the beach. The hotel was spotlessly clean with lovely rooms. Comfy bed and lovely and quiet at night. Very tastefully decorated in a boutique style. The staff were wonderful and could not do enough for you, we were made to feel very... More

A splendid host who was the perfect professional hotelier and clearly took great pride in the place and enjoyed looking after visitors. Very comfortable bed and a great 'home from home' feel to it. Not that far from the centre or sea either.

I was extremely pleasantly surprised with our room, the whole building is immaculate and well presented. Our host was most 'hospitable' and helped us immediately with a map of the area and offered best venues for dinner etc. We most definatley will be back thankyou for a wonderful stay in a fabulous location!!!!

I stayed in the Peonie room, which is small, but very good value and nice and quiet. I appreciated the complementary water, tea and biscuits. The breakfast was good and the service excellent, especially as they turned the music off immediately I entered any room! ! ! (I hate piped music) ! Very good, personal service. Excellently placed for exploring... More

On arrival at this hotel we were made very welcome by Josie. However, on being shown our room , which was very clean, we realised the lack of space and total lack of storage space we would not have been comfortable staying there. The bathroom was no larger than a broom cupboard. We were shown other rooms but they were... More
