We booked in at the Chatsworth on a whim. Had we checked the Trip Advisor reviews, we would have probably have left well alone BUT, on a bitterly cold, snow filled evening, the whole place had a cosy glow about it.
Receptionist Alex was welcoming and friendly, the bar looked inviting and and we got a very good rate for a double overlooking the sea.
Yes, the Hotel is, worn and jaded. The lift is literally out of another century and, bizarrely, didn't stop at the third floor (our floor) going up but did coming down!
However, the renovations (new carpets, double glazing, efficient shower etc) have ensured that it is warm and comfortable. We had an excellent night's sleep.
We had no problem with the breakfast - perfectly cooked to order. All the staff we met were polite and professional. The position of the hotel overlooking the sea, couldn't be better. It is also very near the town centre and a number of bars and excellent restaurants.
To .sum up, this is a 3 star hotel.. It's old and shows it. But the (limited) facilities and extremely affable staff were, for us, spot on. If you can get a good rate and a sea facing room and don't expect 5 star standards you shouldn't be disappointed.,
