"Only experienced the room we stayed in which was OK."
"Churchill is pricey, but worth it for the bath!"
"The Bay room has lovely view of the bay and private beach."
"Not worth an extra £50 per night for a sea view room"
"It is an old building without a lift so you need to be able enough to use stairs to access the rooms."
