We paid around £190 for a Friday night B&B stay so were expecting the room to be pretty good, but in truth it was a little disappointing. Nothing to get upset about, just a little disappointing. The bed was comfortable however and the room was warm (just as well as it was like the Arctic outside) so no great shakes. We were in Room 202 but I imagine most of the rooms are the same. Reasonable size and a great view to the sea (if only the weather had been kinder.)
The bar was a nice place for a drink (expect your standard eye-watering hotel prices) although the service was very s..l..o..w. (Too many people ordering random cocktails that took too long for the one barman to mix up). Breakfast was great and the staff were pleasant and friendly.
Top Tip: Don't bother with the hotel car park. Cars are crammed in like sardines and you get charged £10 for the privilege of having your doors dented. Directly outside the hotel on St Michaels Road the parking is FREE. If that is full (it was for us) just drive another 30 metres along the road to the sea front part of the road and you can park from 5pm UNTIL MIDDAY THE FOLLOWING DAY FOR FREE (It's 2 hours parking between 10am and 7pm so that covers you 5pm till midday)
