The location was great. The staff were extremely friendly and made the stay. The sea view room has an amazing view. Clean enough. Slept good. Only downfalls were no shower head, just a bath. And the breakfast wasn't the best. Overall, looks one of the better hotels on the promenade, and I would happily stay there again.

First impressions, good situation on the Promenade between South and Central piers, ample parking, though it could be... More
