Stayed in a standard room with sea view with my wife and 3 year old child, we booked this hotel as it seemed to be aimed at families rather more than our first choice hotel "The Bay" (the Esplanade hotels' sibling hotel).
The frontage of the hotel wasn't the most inspiring but inside, the ground floor was very pleasant. The reception was friendly and efficient, a trait we found to be common throughout our short stay with almost all staff encountered.
Our room on the second floor was OK. The carpets in the room were a bit tired looking and looked like they needed a good clean. There were a few irritations that need some sort of staff intervention when servicing the rooms, like the kettle lead needing replacing due to exposed single insulation on the flex and the curtain rail handing on by a thread! The windows were pretty grimy, and although I accept the hotel is literally on the sea front (one of it's major plusses) they could do more to clean the windows more regularly.
The facilities were great. A decent pool and children's areas. The restaurant was very good and the breakfasts first class. Ate once in the evening and found the prices quite expensive although as we dined with a discount voucher courtesy of the hotel this was much more acceptable. The food was generally good and service excellent with attentive hostesses who were superb with our daughter.
All in all, the hotel offered reasonable prices. We would prefer a higher standard in our rooms and if we were to book here again we would probably choose one of their "Best" rooms for higher standards. Again, this hotel was booked because it seemed marketed towards families more than it's 4 star sibling at The Bay.
