Outside looks impressive. Inside, the old architecture looks great, lovely the coloured tiled floors and high ceilings. The decor is quirky in throwing old wall paper, old drapes, old chairs and carpets together with nothing matching. But if it did, it may feel less relaxed. Love that a few older couples playing cards or scrabble in the lounge or bar. Reminded me of films of the early 20th century where elderly retired to sea side hotels!
Staff very helpful and friendly. Can't fault them. Has a homely feel which is nice for a big place.
There is a new 'annex', a separate building which I believe is modern inside (didn't see myself).
Beds bit hard and pillows like flat bricks, so bring your own!
