Friendly and welcoming owners immediately made me feel at home. My room was comfortable with a small balcony and sea view. Perfectly located for walking to shops, bars, restaurants etc and the beach was just across the road. There were some free parking permits available, otherwise tickets for half-price parking were offered.

We had a great stay at The Gresham. Very friendly staff. The free parking permit was very convenient. Great views over the sea too. The hotel's location is perfect for access to the towns shops, tourist attraction and bars but far enough that it is very quiet at night.

This was my third stay since Karen and Chris took over. They have worked so hard to refurbish the rooms. Now the colours of the sea and sky are reflected in the paintwork. The breakfast remains as excellent as ever and the welcome as warm. I'll be back.
