Got a really good last minute internet deal (£40 B&B) and had a refurbished double room at the side of the building to myself. The new carpets are really deep pile and the furniture very stylish. The radiator didn`t work but they had supplied a convector heater which was absolutely fine. The bathroom was huge and everything in it was brand spanking new.
The bar was very pleasant and quiet. Breakfast in the restaurant was about the standard for this size of hotel - nothing special but nothing to complain about either.
The pool was great - a proper size (unusual in most hotels) and there was a small sauna and spa bath. In summer you would be able to slide the pool doors open and sit at tables on the lawn.
I found the staff to be very friendly - most were foreign and young.
The hotel is 3 minutes from the clifftop, 6 minutes walk from the Russell Cotes Museum, 8 minutes from the pier (downhill) and 10 minutes from the main shops. It has a large car park and is in a nice part of town.
