We went to a function at the Hilton hotel which was ideal as it was just over the road. As soon as we arrived we did look at the hotel sort of wishing this one wasn't ours as it appears dated and tired however when we walked in we were greeted by a pleasant lady on reception who saw to us straight away and made us feel very welcome.
The place is old fashioned but has a homely feel. Our room was ideal for us, basic and clean, just a base for our stay. Everything was working and in order, the shower was lovely and warm and it was nice and peaceful. We decided to venture into the town later on in the eveing which was a £3 journey up the road in a cab or a ten minute walk along the prom. (good for some fresh air after a night out)
We slept very well, bed very comfortable and the breakfast was very nice and fresh. The owner was friendly and helpful.
This hotel is cheap and cheerful! You get what you pay for and should ignore the snobs who expected their stay here to be like the Ritz even though they are only paying about £35!!!! It is certainly not the Ritz however over all it is convenient and clean and we had a good laugh making the most of our stay.
