Booked this hotel for a special occasssion - we could only afford one night ( not that it was over priced) and wished we could have stayed there all week. We went to the Odeon cinema which was only about 15 minutes walk away and watched Les Miserables on it's second night.
Our room was really outstanding - it was huge with nice clean furnishings and a well proportioned bathroom. There was a lovely sea view looking out of the massive bay window and the memorial to the Red Arrow pilot Flt Lt Jon Egging. The weather was cold and wet but the room was really cosy and warm.
Check in/out times were good and we were told we could arrive much earlier on the day and still used the facilities until our room was ready. Breakfast consisted of a large choice with good table service by the staff. All hotel staff ( reception, room maids and the lady hoovering the hallway ) were very polite and helpful. There was a party on when we were their but once upstairs we'd never know - perhaps the hotel has a policy of grouping party guests near to and directly above their own party rooms to minimise noise to other guests ?
There were some complimentary bottled waters and sweets in the room as well as the usual tea, coffee and biscuits. The hot chocolate was particularly tasty.
Will definately be booking another stay here.
(I've rated the spa as average as I didn't go to see it.)
