I could hardly wait! However, when I went up the stairs in all good faith of having a look, taking pictures and arranging with hotel staff to... More

Room was spacey and beautiful view of the promenade, breakfast was spot on, anything u wanted, from fruit, cereal, wheaten bread, scrambled egg, boiled egg or even the full fry up. Also... More

I was delighted to see a sign outside offering Carvery lunches and also to get seats at the front of the lounge looking out onto the seafront from which we could still see the air show. However when I went to order food I was very disappointed to discover... More
