Thoroughly enjoyed our stop over en route to home, the owner made us feel welcome and was very helpful in recommending a restaurant to try 10 mins down the road.
Excellent location within easy access to the sea front
Our room was absolutely ideal for our needs , nicely decorated fresh modern and very clean all in a very pleasing layout. We were impressed to find good crisp bed linen an ironing board/ iron , hairdryer and a comprehensive tea& drinks tray with bottled water to boot. The bed is a queen size so not a great deal of room once my manly bulk was in occupation, but thats my fault really.
The bathroom deserves a mention , it was clinically clean, bright and well decorated complete with good quality towels, all a major plus in my book. The little 'welcome posey' of fresh flowers in the room shows attention detail and made for a nice welcoming gesture.
I believe the rooms are mostly at the back,so most views would if any be of the courtyard garden, but equally important you are quite well insulated from any traffic noise to be anticipated in a suburban hotel.
Breakfast had loads of options but of course the full English is the order of the day and the acid test ...............it was great ! set me up for the journey home.
An observation not a criticism is that the public areas : Dining room, loungebar area and TV room are decorated in a darker more traditional style but tastefully so and extremely well maintained. Would I recommend this hotel to friends & family ? yes of course.
