My fiancée and I stayed for 4 nights as our first holiday. Initially confused as reception is in a sister hotel about 20 yards away. A lovely clean well decorated ensuite room. Being a non smoking hotel we had to smoke outside and were surprised that there was no apparent smoking area or even cigarette disposal visible, made more visible... More

A very warm and personal welcome from the staff. The room was warm, clean, well decorated with an immaculate bathroom. (Shower) The bed was comfortable. The location was superb, in a quiet road. Parking permit made the stay easy. Breakfast in the Florence House Hotel (opposite) was very good indeed, good choice, freshly prepared and cooked. Again, very personable helpful... More

My mother and I stayed for one night at this hotel, as we were seeing Gregory Porter at the Guildhall. Given that Mum has limited mobility, we took Room 7 (I think) which was on the ground floor. We knew it only had a shower which didn't bother us, but what we did not know was that the WC was... More

Stayed for one night with my girlfriend as Volbeat were playing the Pyramids venue on the seafront. Staff were very professional and made us feel welcome, our room was well presented and ready when we arrived. Reception showed us where we could park and a free parking permit was provided.

Stayed for a relaxing couple days and everyone was so attentive and helpful... Rooms were beautifully designed, elegant, minimal. Great location to get to popular bars, restaurants and shops. Breakfast was well prepared and free parking offered.

Excellent service from the staff especially Mary from the moment we arrived, the food was fantastic and very reasonable followed by the included breakfast which was first class and all you can eat. The rooms we had were very comfortable and clean,offering all you need. The only down side is we could not stay longer but will definitely stay there... More
