Stayed first week on February 2014, when the weather as dreadful. This hotel is very conveniently situated within easy walking distance of the seafront and town centre even for those with restricted mobility (age in our case). The outstanding feature of the hotel is the staff who, without exception, were polite, friendly, and efficient. Our room was the standard grade, and was large, clean, with comfortable beds. The en suite was also clean, but was really in need of up-grading. Everything worked but the plumbing was prone to strange noises, and the ceramic and bath items were different colours. However it turned out to be the quietest room we have ever had bearing in mind the hotel was nearly full (just under 170). The food was plentiful with a choice to suit most and veggie options included. We stuck to the table d'hote offerings and were completely satisfied. There was an interesting range on the a la carte menu, which initially looked expensive, but the prices are substantially discounted if replacing the included table d'hote. Bar prices were about the norm, but we benefitted from the £25 per person vouchers provided to mid week clients, so ended up paying very little extra at the end of our stay. As indicated the weather was very bad and it appeared there was an issue with the central heating system, particularly in the otherwise superb lounge and dining room which were cold with non operational radiators. This was a pity and the source of critical comment by a number of guests we spoke to.
All in all we can not think it is possible to get better value, and in criticism we remind ourselves of what we got for our money - a great deal!
