I loved the old building and it is perfectly situated. My room was large and although old, very comfortable. I had an awesome view overlooking the English Channel. Unfortunately with covid I can’t give an honest review. But definitely will return in normal times to experience the tea and the dining.

Stayed here for 1 night for a business trip. Was able to check in early. No parking available so had to stay in NCP which is just around the corner. The hotel was nice enough and was given a breakfast in a bag for following morning which was picked up from reception. No real complaints apart from my room (130) was very hot! The heating wasn't on but was uncomfortably warm. There is a fan on the roof but made no difference. Would stay again though :)
